Small, Powerful Group members from the UK & Netherlands are collaborating on a project aiming to reclaim control of their data. Most data are collected from service users to help organisations prove the effectiveness of their work to commissioners and funders. WEvolution is attempting to reverse this formula. Small, Powerful Groups are now working to:
- Own their own data
- Decide on what data is collected
- How that data is used
In the spirit of the ethos, the primary function of the data is to provide feedback to Small, Powerful Group members and Small, Powerful Group groups as a whole. A difficult journey, one that makes us nervous and excited.
“It’s amazing to see how it has grown and gathered interest” – Deborah Murdoch, Small, Powerful Group Member
