What's it all about?

Data Brew is a process that uses open data to encourage conversation between community stakeholders to create projects that looks to solve social issues that affect the neighbourhoods they work with.

It is an open source platform which looks to improve collaboration between community leaders, funders, government and citizens.

Community cohesion

Data Brew can bring community leaders and local activist together to discuss social issues that disrupt life for the people who live in our neighbourhoods. The process is created to encourage conversation between local charities, local government, community groups and civic activists who can code, then look to offer solutions to social problems.

Form lasting relationships

Collaboration is a fantastic way to solve social issues, but to ensure change is consistent, its important relationships and partnerships are cultivated between regional leaders, social organisations and the community to ensure lasting change is a possibility. The Data Brew process can help you achieve this.

Create social projects

We will help you analyse local data to use as evidence to create a social project. These could be from a digital campaign, website or mobile application to even a simple infographic. We will help you to bring the right people to the collaboration table to make things happen.

What else can Data Brew offer?

Sometimes you need to meet up that is why we can also offer Data Brew sessions.

For a small cost we can facilitate a workshop that brings together stakeholders such as; residents Local Government, social entrepreneurs, community groups, activists and to encourage collaboration over issues.

Data Brew uses open data to identify social trends and we test that against local knowledge and experiences. Our intention is start a new dialogue building on the data and that can lead to community-led solutions, such as new projects, campaigns or even a new enterprise.

Data Brew can also help train your staff; we’re plain speaking, accessible and practical. Our ambition is that others use Data Brew to grow the idea of communities collecting and sharing data for good.
