Want to understand the data you have or improve on what data you collect and how it is collected? Are you interested in using data and evidence to make important decisions, to fundraise, for policy work and campaigns, to reach new service users or even promote your organisation to stakeholders and beneficiaries?

Come along to our drop-in session and speak to us about this project. Our statistical experts will help you identify all of your data needs and formulate potential solutions. Using your requirements, we will find a volunteer statistician with the appropriate skills and experience to help you tackle them at no cost.

The Royal Statistical Society is a charity and membership body for statisticians, data analysts and data scientists. We have established Statisticians for Society, a pro bono service that connects third sector organisations and statisticians who can provide free expert help to collect, analyse or present data. Read case studies from organisations that have already benefited from the initiative.

Who should attend?

Any UK-registered third sector organisation (charity, social enterprise, community interest company etc.) with an annual turnover of no more than £1 million.

If your organisation does not meet our selection criteria, please contact us to discuss your requirements in detail
