Data isn’t just about numbers and statistics, or even stories; it’s about asking the right questions of the valuable information you have, so that you can better meet the needs of the people you support.
Small charities and community organisations are capturing useful data all the time. So are local authorities, national government, big charities and companies. Both our own data and that of others can help us understand our work, ensure policy makers listen and prevent us being overlooked for vital funds.
Ultimately it helps us make the right decisions, spotting problems before they happen and identifying solutions in ever changing political and socio-economic conditions.

But where do you start?

Or you are only just starting a volunteer programme and need to explain to staff what a help volunteers can be? Come and learn about the key differences between staff and volunteers; organisational responsibilities in keeping the roles separate; and how to build positive relationships, and a welcoming environment for your volunteers.
