Data-driven workplace for the not-for-profit sector

In order to create meaningful and sustained change, the hard-won knowledge and experience of not-for-profit organisations must be respected and harnessed.

Data science is the new currency that is powering social reform. New tools allow us to collect, distil, understand and act on data like never before, hastening the pace of change.

OC House will ensure the social sector can grasp the possibilities presented by these new tools, trialling and refining new methods for managing and learning from data, and disseminating the tools and lessons to the wider social sector to amplify its impact.

Dissemination of tools to the wider social sector through:

  • Regular data science meet-ups / workshops held in function spaces

  • Hackathons

  • Transfer of knowledge and lessons through Our Community and other communications channels.

Members have access to:

  • A social sector-specific data science lab (on-site team of data scientists)

  • Data science communication specialists

  • Connections with leading universities.

The OC House Data & Communications Lab is supported by Equity Trustees, with thanks to the Ella & Mitchell Brazier Fund, Charles Lamond Forrest Estate, James Raymond Hartley Charitable Trust, Charles Frederick William Taylor Estate and Truby & Florence Williams Charitable Trust.
