The first ever UK Data4Good conference will bring together non-profit leaders to inspire and build confidence in the possibilities using data can bring.

The conference will connect leaders and practitioners from charities, social enterprises and funders to share knowledge, skills and good practice on how non-profits are adapting and excelling in an increasingly data-driven world.

We will explore the opportunities and new challenges our sector is grappling with, and provide an opportunity for 'data people' in the sector to come together, share experiences and build a community.

Who's it for?

  • Leaders of charities, social enterprises, and other non-profits
  • Data skilled/responsible people working in/with non-profits and funder organisations
  • Funders including charitable trusts and foundations
  • Academics/public sector professionals with an interest in data for good
  • Businesses providing data related services and products to the non-profit sector

Just a few of the areas we'll cover...

  • Hear from inspiring data-driven non-profits
  • Find out about the support available to non-profits looking to be more data-savvy
  • Explore how advances in open and shared data, new technologies, and the drive towards evidencing impact are transforming how organisations, networks and communities build for a sustainable future
