GLV November AGM & Networking Event

We would like to say thank you to all of those who attended our AGM and networking event last week. We really enjoyed meeting and catching up with you all and hope that you found the afternoon informative.

We would especially like to thank our guest presenters Amanda Lamb (Team London), Farah Elahi (GLA), Kate White (Superhighways) and Karen Chillman (Croydon Volunteer Centre) for delivering such interesting presentations.

Please visit the websites for Croydon Volunteer Centresuperhighways or the London Datastore if you would like to find out more about them.

As promised on the day please see useful links and the presentations from the event below. If you have any further questions or can’t find what you are looking for please email


The useful data sources resource created by London Plus and GLA. This great resource is a list of 14 different sources, with open datasets which can be accessed by all.

As discussed in Kate’s presentation, Data Orchard and DataKind have put together a data maturity framework, designed to help organisations understand where they are in terms of use of data and where they could get to.

The datasets Natasha presented are the Community Life Survey, and the Taking Part Survey.  Take a look at our blog post about Londoner’s Civil Society Participation which uses data from the Community life survey.

If you have any suggestions around big questions in a research theme that you were not assigned to in the meeting please email so that she can include it in her thinking around research streams.
