Come with challenges. Leave with solutions.

The Essex Centre for Data Analytics and DataKind are teaming up to help community and voluntary sector organisations discover what’s possible when it comes to data.

If you’re wondering how data can drive better outcomes for the communities you serve or what more you could do with the information your organisation holds to solve the county’s shared challenges, then the Data for Good event is for you!

From predicting risk to improving service delivery, the data you hold has the potential to transform the way you work. 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 impact or much more, 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 2-4pm at Chelmsford Central Baptist Church to share your most difficult challenges and to discover the potential for partnership working.

You’ll meet the Essex Centre for Data Analytics team 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.

This event is supported by The Essex CVS (ECVS) and is for charitable trusts and organisations operating within the Essex community and voluntary sector only. Spaces are limited to 50 (two representatives per organisation) so book now to avoid disappointment.
