My role is to investigate examples of where socio-economic data held by the UK Data Service has had an impact on academic research, national and local government policy, public bodies, private organisations and communities. It's then my job to make sure we use different approaches to publicise these successful impacts and encourage use of these datasets by others.
I work with the UK Data Service Impact Fellows to support them in their innovative use of data held by the UK Data Service.
I have most recently been creating e-learning materials for a training company which works with welfare-to-work customers, people setting up their own business and other small businesses. Prior to this, I have devised learning and training resources for schools, museums and galleries, as well as evaluating heritage education programmes and assessing their impact.
In the cultural sector, I have worked on multiple projects funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, including oral history and ‘Young Roots’ projects, developing community links, working with volunteers and evaluating and reporting to the HLF on their progress, outcomes and impact.
