What is GM-THINK?
GM-THINK is a multi-agency database that lets services across Greater Manchester share information quickly and securely. The system makes it easy for organisations to coordinate the work they do with people who have multiple and complex needs.
This means that people accessing support won’t have to keep retelling their story every time they approach a different service. They’ll also have their own profile page and can get involved in their own support planning by updating their goals and achievements.
Only those working directly with people accessing services can enter information, including:
- outreach teams
- engagement workers
- peer mentors
- other specialist services
Service users can also access their own information to see what kind of data is being recorded and how it’s used.
To get hold of your record, just ask your support worker. If you’re no longer in contact with your support worker, get in touch with the project or organisation you were working with.
You can also get access to your records when your support worker isn’t there by contacting the relevant support service.
