Making data useful and other stories - how GM local authorities are using data to help their citizens

Tuesday 26th September
18.30 - 20.30
Greenheys 

This month's Open Data Manchester looks at how two local authorities are using data to deliver service.

Alison Mckenzie Folan and Alison Hughes from Wigan Council will show how they are using data and open data to help them engage the community, target resources and enhance services. Wigan Deal has been seen as an exemplar of engagement between the public sector, local businesses and community.

Jamie Whyte leads Trafford Innovation Lab which has been developing new and innovative ways to make open data understandable. The insight created has enabled community groups to use data to help them apply for funding, created resources for councillors and shone a light onto the complex world of school admissions

Open Data Manchester events are spaces for learning, discussion and collaboration. The events are open and free.
