Together with her team, Adela has visited 1,871 families since September, when the Community Services for Children programme started in Moinești. The programme is financed by UNICEF and operates in 38 communities in the county of Bacău in Romania.
When her team met Loredana and Ioan, they immediately saw that their home was not a healthy environment to raise children. She spoke to them and took notes into a tablet app called Aurora. The app helps social workers keep all the information on one family in one place, saving all data in a system that can be accessed by the entire team. Social workers previously took notes on paper and would need extra time to type everything into their computers when they returned to the office. Now they can save time by updating files on the go.
The app also comes with a thorough questionnaire, and alerts users when conclusions can be drawn. It was Aurora that pointed out that Loredana and Ioan are eligible for social housing and that the girls needed vaccines.
