Bringing data skills to bear on UK social issues

DataKind, a charity established in New York last year working to link mission-driven organisations and charities with the data skills needed to achieve impact, has spun off its first international chapter for the UK.

Writing for The Guardian’s Datablog, a board member says that many charities struggle to make the most of their information due to lack of resources of one sort or another – be it an organisational issue, lack of awareness, or just lacking the skills and team needed to make most of the data on hand.
