“I feel it is an app that is very useful and something I need at the moment.”
Don't let people underestimate your story.
ONRECORD helps you gather and prepare your evidence in a secure and simple mobile app. Log each incident as it occurs, create a timeline of events, generate reports to support your case and share your evidence with supportive professionals if you choose to. ONRECORD was founded by Dr George Hibbert and Jill Canvin LLB, who are experienced legal and medical professionals who have spent many years helping clients gather and prepare evidence.
Getting your evidence organised and making it accessible will force people to take you seriously.
How Does It Work?
Whatever your problem or the solution, you must always keep a clear and detailed record of what’s happening. If you don’t, you’re not collecting the evidence you will need to get help and find solutions. Without good records you are left relying on your memory and it may be easy to ignore, challenge or contradict you, making you look confused or dishonest.
It’s difficult, time-consuming and expensive to ask a professional adviser to sort through and convert paper records into a useful document. ONRECORD has the answer…
1. Upload Records
Record and save evidence as soon as things happen and you are safe to do so. Everything you upload is stored together securely to give the fullest picture of what happened and preserve its value as evidence.
If you have a complex problem you can keep records under more than one heading or label.
2. Create a Timeline
You can easily search through your records on your mobile using our calendar and timeline features. Everything you record is securely uploaded and stored in our database. Nobody can see it and it cannot be edited or deleted without your permission.
3. Provide Your Evidence
Only you decide what happens next. When you are ready, you can allow someone you choose to access your evidence so that they can help you. Your records can be exported in chronological order, with links to your attachments, to prepare statements. It might be a lawyer or another advice agency or simply someone you trust to help you.
Who Can We Help?
If you cannot agree arrangements about your children, decisions have to be made by a court. Legal Aid has been cut drastically in private law cases and huge numbers face going to the Family Court without a lawyer. ONRECORD will help you prepare your evidence and make your case whether you’re represented or not. You can make records of any important events and if you’re unhappy about way in which CAFCASS or Social Services are performing their roles keep detailed records. They will be making records of all their appointments with you and you may need to challenge their assertions.
ONRECORD is particularly suited to domestic abuse situations because you often have to show a course of conduct. Record as much and as often as you can no matter how insignificant something might seem.
When you have a problem with people at work, whether you are an employee or an employer, you should start gathering evidence using ONRECORD.
Some arguments, particularly between neighbours, turn into long acrimonious disputes which are hard to resolve and show clearly who the aggressor is and who is the victim. If you’re involved in a dispute that’s running on and difficult to resolve, ONRECORD will help.
Whether it’s bullying of children or adults directly or online, it can have profound effects on health and emotional welfare. Be brave, stand up for yourself or your child and collect the evidence. Using ONRECORD will help you to bring it to an end.
If you or a relative has a diagnosis of Alzheimers Disease or any other long term illness, you may be eligible for NHS continuing health care. ONRECORD will help you gather your own evidence, under the headings of the Decision Support Tool, to add weight to your claim for the funding you need.
If you have a complaint about the care of patients in hospitals, the care of the elderly or learning disabled or the treatment of children in care, ONRECORD will help you get some action taken to remedy the situation.
If you need help with everyday tasks and your local authority or Health and Social Care Trust is carrying out a needs assessment, gathering your own evidence using ONRECORD will add weight to your claim for funding. When you need help to care for a child and an assessment of needs is going to be undertaken by social services, ONRECORD will help you show what the problems are and how difficult it is.
ONRECORD can help you if you know that something doesn’t feel right but you need some evidence to prove it to yourself or convince someone else. ‘Gaslighting’ even makes you doubt your own sanity. When strange and unexpected things happen and the explanations you’re given aren’t feasible, then ONRECORD can help you find the truth.
Facing a complaint or allegation is one of the most destructive experiences and can impact your reputation, your career and your livelihood. Often, it is the reaction of your employer or peer group that is most harmful and you may get little or no support. Make a record not only of the event itself but also of the reactions, investigations and communications, as well as the harms and other consequences you experience. This will help you explain your circumstances to your legal adviser, a regulator or your union.
If you have a complaint and are struggling to resolve it, use ONRECORD to gather, secure and organise the evidence to produce a clear timeline and calendar of events with all the information combined in a chronology. It’s better than notes or a diary. ONRECORD makes it easy.
Use your mobile on site to record health and safety critical events and your response. Upload all the evidence available and in an emergency you can share it immediately with an advisor or senior management in real time.
ONRECORD is a better and easier way to record and keep a caseload of records securely, in real time, with a consistent format and immediately available to supervisors and others with permission. It is so easy to use that it becomes simple to record not only the child’s behaviour but also such things as it’s impact on you and others.
