How a city council improves services and saves money 

Lynn Wyeth Head of Information Governance and Risk, Leicester City Council describes how the council links data in-house to improve services and save money.


Leicester’s council does use its administrative data and links its data together in house, to get some benefit

  • we’ve been doing initiatives with anti social behaviour and the police,
  • we’ve put data in our data warehouse to get information out for our troubled families project
  • we’ve used data to work with the public reporting grot spots and abandoned cars, etc, through our app Leicester Love

and so we’ve been trialling new ways of using our data to get more efficient services and to save money but to offer a better service to citizens
