Success Story

ILLY exists to make a real difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable people within our communities.

We do this by developing easy to use technology that provides commissioners, practitioners and data analysts with the tools they need, as well as the confidence to know that their client’s information is in the safe hands of people who are passionate about helping them.

So that we can share the ideas and approaches that have been developed with our partners across the ILLY community, we have chosen to highlight key success stories. By doing this, we hope to show that there is real progress being made through employing innovative technologies, despite the continuous challenges that all of us face.

We are grateful for Buckinghamshire Council for sharing their approach and we are delighted with their open and progressive outlook. Their key focus has been to make sure that the client remains at the centre of everything they do, so that their support and recovery needs are met within a framework which ensures effective outcomes for both the service and the service user.
