RnR Organisation is a proud partner in the UK’s first national ‘Data4Good’ conference, the first event of its kind in the UK, run by the non-profit sector for the non-profit sector.

The event aims to inspire and connect leaders and practitioners from charities, social enterprises, and funders interested in exploring the new possibilities of data. Themes will explore how non-profits are adapting and excelling in an increasingly data-driven world, some of the new challenges we grapple with, and how the sector can build skills and capabilities in this new field.
