Collaborate, share data, get better information on your low income households
Data can tell us what impact national and local policies are having on low income households and help us design better interventions for people who need them.
Reveal the poverty trends across your low income households via a self service dashboard. Track the prospects of households and see which of your support activities are working best. Identify people in danger of crisis before it hits. Plan and forecast strategic and operational activity proactively to prevent hardship.
The ability to drill-down from a local authority level to ward level, right down to individual households leads to better strategic decisions, and the ability to implement them operationally. Tracking households over time enables powerful predictive analysis, and can shows the impact of interventions over time.
Essex County Council recognises the potential benefits in safely sharing data across partner organisations. As such, subject to interest from partners across Essex, Southend and Thurrock, it would seek to submit a business case to match fund the contribution of partners.
