Essex Data: Platform

The Essex Data: Platform (ED: P) enables change in how different public service organisations in Essex share information. Sponsored by the Essex Partnership Board, the project provides a way to safely share and match data.

Through the Local Government Associations Better Use of Data – Local Data Experts Programme the Centre is working with ED: P, providing expert support to:

  • developing an understanding of the issues and potential of a pseudonymised versus individual level approach to data analysis for future prototypes;
  • embedding learning associated with the process, governance and culture of data sharing gained so far from ED:p, and;
  • developing an understanding of how ED: P can be grown and sustained within the partnership environment to ensure maximum return on investment and value to public service delivery.
