Improving Futures - Database Development


Big Lottery Fund

Improving Futures is a major £20M UK programme, which aims to improve outcomes for children in families with multiple and complex needs. Ecorys has been commissioned to lead a consortium to deliver the work that includes the University of Nottingham, Parenting UK and Ipsos MORI.

For this programme we developed an online project monitoring tool using Microsoft .NET and SQL Server technologies. The online system and associated database offers an effective data capture method for this programme. The intuitive and uncluttered web-interface has led to high engagement levels from participating projects and provided our in-house evaluation team with an invaluable dataset for analysis.
