How can public data and information support Bristol charities?
Bristol Workshop, Thursday 13th October, 1pm - 4pm
Join us to give your opinions on:
How data can help your organisation deliver services to your clients
What you would like to see in the future to make your jobs easier in using and interpreting data
Voscur and ODI Bristol have joined forces to see how we can support the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) in Bristol access and use public data and information in simpler ways to help organisations across a range of areas, including:
Understanding the socio-economic make up of communities
In depth understanding of community needs
Analyse where other VCS organisations are working and what clients they are working with
Understand which funders are operating in which communities
Data on these areas and much more is generated and made publicly available by Central and Local Government, research bodies, Charity Commission, funders and other VCS organisations. All this data presents a huge opportunity to understand and visualise a rich picture of the communities we work in.
As under-resourced organisations, it is increasingly hard to access and analyse all the data and information across the city that can help improve our work and access the resources needed to continue our work.
How can this workshop help:
An opportunity to come together with other organisations from across the VCS and data world in Bristol to share ideas, learn each others' needs and plan a way forward that will mean data and information can be more effectively used within the voluntary sector.
