For Vulnerable Young People In Care

Appropriate proactive monitoring

eSafe enables a local authority and care providers to effectively capture markers of safeguarding risk involving vulnerable young people in care.

Proactive monitoring of computer devices provided to children and young people in care is a valuable component to ensuring their safety and a useful barometer of the effectiveness of a Children’s Services strategy and intervention policy.

With many years experience of close cooperation with the multi agency teams and specialist care providers, eSafe can deliver a localised, flexible service with the appropriate escalation protocol to protect and educate vulnerable young people.

Unique Value

The eSafe Service is an intelligence-led early warning system that detects inappropriate IT activity 24 x 7. It uses forensic techniques to monitor imagery, language, Internet activity and off-line use, and informs as appropriate those charged with child safety of evident abuse.

The eSafe Service is a completely outsourced, managed service with all server hosting, incident monitoring, incident reporting and escalation, parameter setting and configuration,  and software systems updates and maintenance performed by eSafe staff.

The service is deployed remotely within minutes and can be localised to cater for the specific monitoring requirements of individual young people in care.

Multiple nominated contacts for reporting and escalation can be accommodated and the information routed depending on the user involved and/or the nature or severity of the incident.

The reviewed incident records are retained to build a pattern of behaviour, historic activity and to provide the basis for trend analysis.

At all times eSafe have been responsive and collaborative, working with us to provide the right information to the right people in a timely manner. Having qualified people able to check individual items of concern flagged up by the system has been invaluable and I would recommend eSafe without reservation

Testimonials

Westholme School

Jude Gough - Deputy Head

eSafe has been a great addition to the safeguarding provision at Westholme. It allows us to meet regulatory requirements regarding internet safety but also be proactive in monitoring the students’ use of the in-house technology in school. It has assisted us in identifying pupils with mental health and friendship issues, but also those who were attempting to misuse our provision and bypass systems put in place to protect them.

Grove House Primary

Paul Tillotson - Site Manager

The eSafe service is very easy to install and deploy; you don’t even notice it is there and it does exactly what it says it does.

Manchester Creative Media & Arts Academy

Liza Carr - Vice Principal

For users, the single biggest benefit since the introduction of eSafe has been that we have been able to open up our systems and not be so restrictive or proscribed. It has also allowed us to see a policy in practice, with eSafe providing the evidence to show that the policies are being followed and that they are effective, confirmed by a recent comment from a pupil to an Ofsted inspector that they genuinely felt safer than before the Forensic Monitoring Service was deployed.
