Data Brew is a process that uses open data to encourage conversation between community stakeholders to create projects that looks to solve social issues that affect the neighbourhoods they work with.

It is an open source platform which looks to improve collaboration between community leaders, funders, government and citizens.

Community cohesion

Data Brew can bring community leaders and local activist together to discuss social issues that disrupt life for the people who live in our neighbourhoods. The process is created to encourage conversation between local charities, local government, community groups and civic activists who can code, then look to offer solutions to social problems.

Let's make using open data simple

Open data is information freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. Open data is a formidable tool to create projects that aid social mobility; we can show you using this method isn’t as daunting as it sounds.

Form lasting relationships

Collaboration is a fantastic way to solve social issues, but to ensure change is consistent, its important relationships and partnerships are cultivated between regional leaders, social organisations and the community to ensure lasting change is a possibility. The Data Brew process can help you achieve this.
