E-CINS and Vulnerable Persons

E-CINS comes into its own when used to wrap support around individuals.  Those who are most vulnerable can be supported by multiple agencies through E-CINS to ensure that an individual's personal needs are understood and that they receive tailored care and support using a joined-up, holistic approach.

E-CINS national database provides authorities, police and their partners with the facility to raise the alarm to carers, supporting associations and the families of vulnerable people so that they are able to immediately get background information which they can use to help make informed decisions about appropriate intervention,

Agencies tasked with supporting those at risk of abuse or neglect are able to monitor, report, share, alert and come together in one place and in realtime to assist in the following areas:

  • Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO’s) 
  • Community Link Alarm Scheme
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Dementia Project
  • Fuel Poverty
  • Missing Persons
  • Modern Slavery
  • Prostitution
  • Vulnerable NHS Patients

“As part of a DV agency I was looking forward to see how E-CINS was working alongside the other areas within E-CINS. I can see how this could be a powerful tool as a co-ordinated community approach is integral to successful DV service provision particularly to high risk MARAC cases and the potential impact of DHRs, and therefore would be really interested to hear more around this. I enjoyed the day thank you and learnt a lot.”

"All information was uploaded to E-CINS where the various agencies involved in the case could pull the information together. This led to the main problem B&B being inspected, (with the others likely to follow), and it was established that a license in respect of House Of Multiple Occupancy (HOMO) be applied."
