An online application to help Surrey youth workers complete tasks on the move has been launched by the council.

The technology, which is expected to save Surrey County Council up to £100,000 a year, is believed to be the first of its kind in the country.

It has been developed for a tablet computer and smartphone with the aim of cutting down on form-filling.

Councillor Kay Hammond said it would free up youth workers to spend more time with young people.

The app can be used on BlackBerry's Playbook tablet computer and Torch smartphone.

Surrey has 70 full-time youth worker roles and 31 youth centres.
