Datawise London helps small charities and voluntary organisations tackle the tough issues that Londoners face by learning how to make best use of data.
It helps you to be iterative, continually reshaping what you do day-by-day to better meet the needs of the people that matter to you.
With a robust evidence base small organisations are also more likely to be heard and influence stakeholders and decision makers.
Datawise London offers training, advice and practical support to help small charities develop data and digital skills they need to deliver the best possible activities and outcomes for local people.
Datawise London is a data literacy and digital skills partnership. It brings together a range of expert organisations to both shape the strategic direction of the programme and deliver direct support where needed.
Superhighways, part of Kingston Voluntary Action, is one of only a small number of projects in London to receive funding from the Cornerstone Fund, a multi-funder initiative to test how civil society infrastructure could be jointly funded in London and apply a systems change approach.
We are grateful to City Bridge Trust, the funding arm of The City of London Corporation’s charity, Bridge House Estates, who are funding this work.
I found it really helpful to talk to other people in similar positions to myself, having issues with collecting / analysing data in the charity sector
I'll be writing funding applications and will use what I learnt today to evidence the outcomes and impact
Helped me to think through and question what kind of data we collect, how we use it and how we could better use data to measure our impact
I am looking forward to presenting my data and findings in a clearer way, and making it more accessible and easier to comprehend for the rest of my team
We were given copies to take away of the days training which I found useful, as I could quickly go over what I had learnt whilst still fresh in my mind
