About this Event

How can data drive better outcomes for the communities you serve?

What information do you hold that could solve your shared challenges?

Unlock the hidden power behind the information you collect. From predicting risk to improving service delivery, the data you hold has the potential to transform the way you work.

The Essex Centre for Data Analytics and DataKind can help you discover what’s possible.

By bringing together teams of analysts and data scientists with your service knowledge and expertise we can determine how the data you hold may enable you to achieve your goals, whether that’s to better serve your communities, define future needs, evidence funding, then we’ll match you with a team that can translate those needs into data science problems and solve them with advanced analytics.

We’re ready and willing to commit our knowledge, energy and enthusiasm - free of charge - to use data science for social good. All we ask for in return is your time and an open mind – you don’t need to be a data guru – just join us on 25th February at Chelmsford Central Baptist Church to share your most difficult challenges and to discover the potential for partnership working.

You’ll meet the team from The Essex Centre for Data Analytics and the Business and Local Government Data Research Centre and hear about the work we’re currently doing to unlock data driven insight to tackle domestic abuse, homelessness, physical inactivity, youth violence and vulnerability, knife crime, avoidable A&E attendance and mental health crises.

DataKind will also share examples of social change organisations that have used the data revolution to gain new insights to transform their mission-driven organisations to improve the world, from battling hunger to advocating for child well-being and more.

And to whet your appetite here are some examples of organisations embracing data analytics to deliver change….
