Superhighways will be curating and delivering this specialist data literacy programme with the help from our partners who have exceptional knowledge of data science, impact measurement, equalities and technical know-how:
Superhighways is leading the Datawise London programme.
Superhighways offers advice, training and IT support to help small charities and community organisations across London be more effective, raise their profile and demonstrate their impact using digital technology.
Superhighways is the only non-profit in London focused solely on the use of digital technology in community organisations in London’s local civil society. It is part of the charity Kingston Voluntary Action.
Coalition for Efficiency
Coalition for Efficiency help small charities and social enterprises focus on maximising their impact. It’s flagship programme, Measuring the Good, is designed as a practical and structured approach to help organisations embed a culture of impact management in order to improve their performance, learning and be effective in how they serve their communities.
DataKind UK brings together top data scientists from cross sector backgrounds with leading social change organizations to collaborate on data projects that maximize social impact.

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
