NPC Freeing Up Health Analysis Front Cover

Freeing up health analysis

Based on the precedent of the Justice Data Lab, we argue that relevant government departments should adopt a data labs model to enable charities to better understand the impact of their services on people’s health. This would allow the whole health sector learn what works, and would help to build more effective and efficient services.

NPC response the Lords Select Committee on Charities’ review

The Lords Select Committee on Charities was set up to consider issues related to sustaining the charity sector. The Committee recently released a call for evidence on the topic from interested parties. In our response we draw on our experience working for over a decade with charities and funders, bringing to light the challenges and opportunities the voluntary sector currently faces.
