Seeing the wood for the trees: A LVSC and London for All data jam

Posted on 22 September 2014

In order to support VCS organisations navigate their way through some of the available data LVSC held a half day event on the 17th September at Graeae Theatre. The event showcased key pieces of research, provided a space for debate on the limits and gaps in existing data and gave participants an opportunity to see how data can be used to support their organisations aims and objectives.

Please find below a short report on the event, presentations and links to further information.
