This website is all about the UK Data4Good conference which took place in November 2018. If you are interested in hearing about our plans for future conferences on this topic, or want to be part of our plans for a Data4Good community of practice, please sign up to our mailing list for updates. You can also find out more about Data Orchard and our Data4Good work on our website.
The first ever UK Data4Good conference will bring together non-profit leaders to inspire and build confidence in the possibilities of data.
The conference will connect leaders and practitioners to explore how non-profits are adapting and excelling in an increasingly data-driven world.
We’ll showcase those at the forefront, harnessing data to design more effective and efficient services, achieve better outcomes, and deliver greater impact. We’ll also hear how data is informing and transforming funders’ policies and grant-making practices.
Responding to popular demand, we’ll share best practice on what data to collect, new digital tools for data management and analysis, and where to find help and resources. This event is also about creating a diverse community of ‘data4good people’. An opportunity for us to come together, share experiences, build our sector’s knowledge and skills.
