We partner with organisations large and small across a wide range of issue areas. From large, national bodies, to local food banks and hospices. We work with them on shorter data exploration projects called DataDives, that end in a weekend of intense data work. There are also DataCorps, where social change organisations work with data scientists in the long-term to embed data science into their day-to-day. Here are some of our favourite stories about the projects and organisations we have worked with.
The Access Project seeks to combat inequality by using volunteer tutors to help motivated state school students access top universities. They wanted to understand what makes for a successful pairing between tutor and student so that they could make the volunteer experience better and help more students.
The North East Child Poverty Commission does what it says on the tin: it seeks to reduce child poverty in the north east of England. To understand the scale and nature of an issue as big as child poverty, you need data.
Buttle UK gives out around 10,000 small grants a year to some of the most vulnerable children, young people and families in the UK, and wanted to find the common threads that run between each family's unique story in order to better support them.
St Mungo’s Broadway, a charity that helps people recover from the issues that lead to homelessness, linked up their data with Citizens Advice, a national charity that provides free advice and information on civil matters to the public.
Mind in the City, a local branch of the national mental health charity, brought into focus the formidable challenge of delivering mental health services to diverse local communities and showed how basic data science techniques can provide powerful insights.
As Wales' leading homeless charity, Llamau teamed up with DataKind UK and the Office for National Statistics to find out who benefits the most from their programs and which services and projects are achieving the most successful outcomes.
