Local Data Accelerator Fund

The Local Data Accelerator Fund aims to improve the use of data to support children and families. It is a two-year funding stream of £7.9m split over two years.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government invites bids from partnerships of local authorities and other local agencies that will improve outcomes for families.

The core components for the bids which MHCLG are looking for are:

1. Exemplar data projects – Bids should include an exemplar data project which involves using data from different agencies to improve services. Guidance is set out under data functions heading. The projects should provide real world benefits, i.e. better targeted, earlier and more effective interventions to support vulnerable children and families. Projects should be innovative, sustainable and scalable i.e. appropriate for adoption by other local areas.

2. Sharing skills and good practice – Projects that improve the data maturity of the project partners i.e.: getting more advanced areas to share skills and learning with less other areas.

3. Partnerships of local authorities and other agencies, including universities – Bids should be from a partnership of local authorities and other local services including a mix of agencies with different levels of data maturity.

MHCLG is looking to fund a range of exemplar data projects that will improve lives for vulnerable children and families. Exemplar projects could include new analysis of existing linked data, new data sharing and data linking or developing processes for collecting and comparing data. It could be to improve operational delivery of services or it could be to inform strategic policy decisions such as commissioning decisions and service planning.
