WY-FI Launches Interactive New Dashboard

The Research and Evaluation Team at WY-FI have created a brand new, interactive dashboard, which is accessible from the main menu on the website.

It provides quick and easy access to key beneficiary data from the project over the past five years.

Data can be filtered quickly and easily by locality, gender, age, ethnicity and type of HARM need (homelessness, addiction, reoffending and mental health). 

For example – in just a few clicks, a search could be done on the number of males in Leeds aged between 35 and 40 who’ve experienced homelessness, or on the types of exits we’ve recorded in females under 25 in Bradford.

Anthony Leeman, Data Analyst at WY-FI, has been leading on the development of the dashboard. “We’ve been working on this behind the scenes for a few weeks. We wanted to make our data more accessible for people, as well as make it easier for our data to be shared.

Anthony went on to say, “the dashboard holds data from the moment beneficiaries enter WY-FI caseload. It tracks their progress over time, as well as their exits – including any other services and/or support that were involved.”

The Data and Research Team hope that as well as providing at a glance data, the dashboard will offer deeper insight into the work that we do across West Yorkshire, and generate questions and discussions around the demographics and other details of the project’s work. 

The dashboard is now live on the WY-FI website, and will be updated monthly. It includes a handy user guide to get you started.

If you need any help using the dashboard, or have any questions, comments or feedback, you can contact Anthony Leeman at anthony.leeman@humankindcharity.org.uk or call him on 0113 887 0051.
