20. Recording and management information

Buckinghamshire Children’s Services case records will be kept on the departments electronic case recording system, LCS. There is a homelessness indicator on the LCS to identify and monitor homelessness for 16/17 year olds. Management information will be generated from LCS by staff based in the Business Intelligence Information Team.

Records on young people kept by housing providers must be returned to Buckinghamshire Children’s Services once they have left the placement as the records form part of the young person’s looked after records which may need to be accessed by them in the future.

Records kept by Homeless Services in relation to any homelessness duty accepted will be recorded on Housing database and reported in accordance with homelessness requirements.
