Discussing how funders can build user-centred approaches into their work?
Building funding around user-centred design
About this event
We believe those who are affected by social issues are best placed to inform their solutions, in partnership with the practitioners who work with them. Funders are increasingly recognising this, and developing strategies shaped by lived experience. User-centred approaches are also essential to developing technology that meets real needs and is wanted by its users. But how can funders build user-centred approaches into their work?
This event will demo NPC’s work in this area, identifying priorities for investment in technology from the perspective of the people that charities and funders exist to serve. Our work with young people experiencing multiple disadvantage in Camden, and with young women working towards meaningful and sustainable employment in Kenya and India, is built around user-centred approaches to research and design. Using this as an opportunity to explore and learn together, the session will help identify opportunities for funders to deepen their commitment to user-centred design, and partner with those taking user-centred approaches.
