In early June 2019 Policy and Practice was represented by Head of Policy, Zoe Charlesworth, at the National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers (NAWRA) conference at the Old Naval College, Greenwich. Zoe's presented on how data can be used to understand poverty and inequality, and how this data can feed into frontline support.
Zoe showed how self-employed households could be identified, those most at risk of application of the minimum income floor could be targeted, and households could be better supported to make decisions that were right for them. Zoe pointed to the case study of Greenwich who use frontline tools from Policy in Practice (the LIFT dashboard and Benefits Calculator) to identify, target and support those in need. Using data in this way provides the Greenwich Welfare Support team with the ability to offer pro-active and holistic support to residents and enables the council to make strategic decisions based on evidence-based trends and forecasts.
