Enabling the future of Family Information

Together we are stronger

What does the future look like?

At AntCrowd CIC, we are keen to support UK local authorities, FIS teams and multi-agencies in a closer and more fruitful way than ever before. Our desire is to build partnerships and work together to choose our own future. A fresh future, full of positive change, where FISs can at last truly provide value to all service users and professionals alike, can be fully recognised for the impact they have on people’s lives and have access to the information tools they need to do their job better, easier, quicker and more effectively, in the UK and beyond.

Better Support

FISs (Family Information Services) have had mixed experiences in the past regarding support, especially concerning technology suppliers. Success is providing support so that it feels like we are a team, advancing confidently towards a common goal.

Effective systems

We are passionate about effective technology. FISs need superior, cutting edge tools for frontline delivery of information, advice and guidance. We want to provide systems that work locally, nationally and internationally for the benefit of ALL parties, not just some.

More engagement

Key role for FIS

Above all else, we want to ensure that FIS continues to be the powerhouse of information delivery that it is. We will make it better to work in the FIS, receive from the FIS and work with the FIS. That is our challenge.
