Superhighways has linked up with organisations including DataKind UK to offer small charities a greater understanding of how they can use data.

An initiative is launching to help small charities in London to improve their digital skills and analysis of data.

Kate White, Manager, Superhighways said: “Data doesn’t have to be a scary word for small organisations: data can help charities determine where problems lie, solve them more efficiently, influence policy and unlock community potential to create and deliver services that meet local people’s needs.

“Our partnership will ensure that small social impact organisations aren’t left behind by their large charity or commercial counterparts by giving them access to the quality training, advice and specialist support they need to develop their data skills and knowledge, underpinned by strong digital capability.”
