Despite providing essential services such as ambulances, youth mentoring, and food banks, the social sector lags behind the private sector in how it uses and understands the wealth of information it holds.
DataKind UK works to bridge this gap by providing free analytical support to the social sector to help them improve their operations, understand their clients better, evaluate their services, and increase their impact, using their own information. Since launching in 2013, we have run low-to-no-cost insight projects with 105 organisations, and supported hundreds more with free advice.
Do you have questions about your service, beneficiaries, or programmes that you’d love to explore? DataKind UK’s CEO Giselle Cory will share how other organisations have used their existing resources and information to reach new insights such as who you are and aren’t reaching, where to target services, and what further information to collect from service users. You’ll also hear about some of the tools that you can use to frame your challenges, support your team to understand and embrace new approaches, and build responsible processes.
We think this will be a popular event so book your place early.
