Facts and evidence to enable public, voluntary and private sector organisations to: • Provide better local services for people – through planning and targeting for specific local priorities and needs. • Support strong communities where people feel they belong – through services that are more open, transparent and accountable to local residents and communities. • Secure cost-savings and efficiencies for public sector organisations and partnerships. • Support businesses to grow and create jobs – through developing local economies, and secure economic growth. • A means to unlock facts and evidence held in different organisational and system silos, and thus realise the benefits above. • Ensuring that data can be used in new, innovative ways by new audiences including local residents, communities and businesses. Data Open Data The prize is a web of data, where local and national sources from many organisations can be quickly and easily brought together and re-used in a wide range of ways.
