DataKind UK: Autumn DataDive 3-5 Oct
September 02, 2014

DataKind UK is pleased to anounce our autumn DataDive! It will be held on the 3-5 October 2014 in central London at the Royal Statistical Society. (Not on the 19-21 September as previously planned.)

This DataDive is special. Citizens Advice, the charity that provides free advice and information on civil matters to the public, are making mounds of data from their advice service available at the DataDive. Join us as we mix, match, analyze and learn from combining different charities' data to discover new patterns and insights and solve societal problems!

The charities bringing their projects and data to the event are St. Mungo's Broadway, a London-based charity that helps people recover from the issues that create homelessness so they can rebuild their lives, and The Institute for Local Governance, a research group looking at child poverty in the North East. We will also continue work on the early warning system that we began developing for Citizens Advice at the June DataDive.
