Deven Ghelani, Policy in Practice, was joined by guest speaker Martin O’Neill, former Head of Benefits at Birmingham City Council in our Tracking the prospects of low income households webinar. Together with Terrin Mathew, Policy in Practice’s Technical Data Analyst, our speakers discussed the role data visualisation can play in delivering anti-poverty strategies.
Taking four key recommendations from Birmingham’s Child Poverty Commission report, Martin explained how Policy in Practice’s data dashboard could be used to turn the recommendations into deliverable actions.
Policy in Practice is helping Croydon to target support and track the impact on residents, and to deliver a proactive, preventative approach to keeping people in their homes. Mark Fowler and the team were shortlisted for a LGC Award 2017 for Innovation for their People’s Gateway Enablement and Welfare Service, which features this work.
