Here at Data Orchard we understand the importance of data for evidence-based policy making and planning in the public sector. Robust information is key in the context of the enormous squeeze on the public purse, to focus spend on areas of greatest need. Whether it’s about evidencing needs, consultation and engagement or profiling a particular group of people or local area, we can help.
Our team can help you make sense of your data and information to understand what your local residents think and what they may need in future. We have extensive public sector experience providing strategic intelligence and evidence for cross-sector working. For example:
Survey Design – Design of surveys that ask the right questions in the right way for your target audience and give you the data you need.
Crack-It – Quick practical on-site help to solve specific problems with spreadsheets and MS Office tools. Fixing glitches, automating time consuming processes, and finding easier and better ways to organise, manage and analyse your data.
Impact Evaluation – Designing frameworks for measuring outcomes and impact data. Evaluating before and after interventions using statistical methods.
Needs Analysis – Consultation, sourcing data for redesign of policies and services
Consultation – Facilitation of meetings, focus groups, stakeholder engagement, interview techniques.
Mapping – Digital mapping (GIS) to visualise and analyse data
Public speaking – Presentations at meetings, seminars and conferences.
Training – We currently offer bespoke training for clients. In 2017 we plan to launch a new range of courses and webinars so get in touch let us know what you’re interested in.
