Citizens Advice and British Red Cross among charities taking part in inaugural Data4Good Festival

A raft of charities and sector organisations are to take part in the first Data4Good Festival next week, to showcase how they are using data to improve their impact.

The Data4Good Festival will feature case studies from charities including Citizens Advice, London’s Air Ambulance Charity, Sustrans, Teach First, Cause4 and British Red Cross.

The event takes place from 10 to 12 May and includes practical sessions on data use, analysis and data science.

Sessions aimed at charity leaders and as well as support on data and diversity from HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network will also take place.

Grantmaking data is another issue being covered at the event.

The festival is hosted by a partnership of charity sector organisations that is majority funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. DataKindUK, New Philanthropy Capital and Small Charities Coalition are also involved.

Charity Times has compiled a list of the Top 10 data sources for charities.
