DataBridge findings & learning event

DataBridge is a short exploratory project over spring and summer working with the community and voluntary sector to investigate trends and issues on data use. We worked with six Brighton & Hove voluntary sector organisations to investigate trends and issues in the sector on data use (their own, existing published data and emerging open data). We’ve taken a particular focus on service improvement and linking up with Intelligent Commissioning programme.

In addition, our analysts have worked with one group in particular to demonstrate how to use a range of data sources to investigate whether particular neighbourhoods or potential beneficiaries are not known to or not being reached. This included:

  • Neighbourhood analysis by Lower Super Output Area
  • Populations with key characteristics
  • Identification of areas or groups are under-represented

At the feedback event we will:

  1. Talk through the methods used to do this piece of work, sharing learning you can take back and apply to your organisation
  1. Summarise the findings of the project overall and talk through issues raised and recommendations
  1. Hold a discussion led by Brighton & Hove Council on their thinking on data sharing and a city-wide approach to needs assessment

As well as the 6 DataBridge groups, this event is aimed at voluntary sector or social enterprise organisations, local government officers and others interested in how data can be better used within the social and community sectors.

This event is linked with the Dialogue 50:50 group and in partnership with Brighton & Hove Council

1pm – 4pm 21 October, (1-2pm Dialogue 50:50, 2-4pm DataBridge)

Council Chambers, Hove Town HallNorton Road, Hove, BN3 4AH

Please note we’re intending to film the feedback and discussion sessions in order to be able to share more widely (both live and after the event).
