Explore your data over time

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.

“Working with Policy in Practice we’ve developed information that supports, informs and helps us monitor the effectiveness of our strategies. Without a proactive, preventative approach we fear for the longer term impact on residents.”

“I can’t see whether the people being clobbered by reductions in council tax support or under-occupation are the same people that have been clobbered by other reforms.”

Steve Carey, Leeds City Council

“We want to move beyond sticking plaster solutions. If we can promote work and independence by understanding who’s impacted by welfare reforms we’ll have more resources available for those who still need our support.”

Chris Gibbs, Birmingham City Council

“We take partnership working very seriously and we only work with organisations who we genuinely feel can make a difference. Policy in Practice very much falls into this category.”

James Pickering, Oxford City Council
