Data is central to building the case for change. We need to understand how well we’re doing. Policy in Practice is helping us track the outcomes of the people we’ve been working with and compare them to people we’ve not engaged, to evidence the impact of our new approach.
Explore your data over time to prevent hardship
Identify people in danger of crisis before it hits. Target support where it will be most effective. Track changes to see which of your activities are working.
Universal Credit transition support
How the LIFT dashboard can help you support vulnerable households as they move onto Universal Credit.
How the LIFT dashboard can help you tackle homelessness and meet the requirements of the Homelessness Reduction Act.
The Policy in Practice LIFT Dashboard has allowed us to draw together previously disparate databases into one easily accessible platform. It maps our data against future predicted changes in inflation of household goods and predicted welfare changes and gives the team an easily accessible platform to see what residents’ situations are.
The LIFT Dashboard allows Cornwall Council to take a more focused approach to assisting those impacted by welfare reforms, and improves on our previous, slightly scattergun, approach. This extra focus allows us to have a greater impact on vulnerable residents in Cornwall without increasing resources.
