The aim of the workshop was to build a shared understanding for enhancing knowledge and use of data and evidence to inform community planning. Learning Outcomes: • Improve understanding of data and evidence, whey they are important, where to find information, what support is available and how to use it. • Increase confidence and competence in using evidence to make robust and strong decisions about the future of their council area. • Ensure council is targeting resources in the most impactful way. • Safeguard council’s reputation as a responsible decision-making body.
