We know that the smart use of data in charities and social enterprises can transform their impact. We also know that many staff and volunteers struggle to get started with making better use of their data.

That’s why we have launched the Data Evolution project. We want to properly understand the challenges that different groups and organisations across social sector and across the UK face in terms of making better use of data to deliver their mission.

We hope to be able to develop a framework for understanding data maturity in the sector.

That framework should make it easier to deliver support and interventions tailored to the needs of organisations at different stages on the data journey.
