Community Data Toolkit
The Office for Disability Issue has produced a Community Data Toolkit, which aims to provide everything disability groups and other grassroots organisations need to know about how to analyse and interpret data in one place.
The document provides an overview of what constitutes data, the types of data available and advice is given on how the different data types should be evaluated. Links to websites run by key data providers, including the Office for National Statistics, are also provided.
Created with the help of grassroots organisations including Merton Centre for Independent Living and Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind, the toolkit is easily accessible and includes a series of case studies and scenarios demonstrating how these organisations can put the data to good use and how issues may affect their clients.
