DAN works to help member local authorities improve their information systems, both
paper- and computer-based, in order to achieve better outcomes for children in need,
particularly those who are looked after. Much of DAN’s work over the past year has
identified areas where information systems can be improved to better meet the needs of
managers, practitioners and, ultimately, service users.
This is an annual report prepared as part of a project by the Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University.
