This year's Annual Analytics Summit (21 June 2016, BMA House, London) features a packed rosta of speakers. Four analytics experts from the University of Hull, AAM Associates and data science company Coppelia will discuss their work harnessing the power of analytics for one of the UK’s most talked-about charities - the Trussell Trust.

Andy Hamflett and Giles Hindle will present an impact case study of the RCUK-funded NEMODE project which aligned the Trussell Trust business model with food bank data and a variety of open data sets. In doing so, the team created the UK’s first dynamic visualisation tool for crises related to food poverty. Richard Vidgen and Simon Raper will unpack it in the afternoon sessions.

The prototype uses foodbank data to map geographical demand and also aligns findings to 2011 Census data to predict where additional foodbanks may be needed. This led not only to immediate insights on usage patterns, and the development of a predictive tool, but also points to much greater strategic potential both for the Trust and for a wider community of charities working to counter UK poverty.
