On behalf of the DWP, we would like to invite you to complete a short survey designed to support the development of an exciting new service called the Employment Data Lab.

The Employment Data Lab will be a service provided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and is designed to enable the evaluation of employment related interventions carried out by third party organisations, such as yours. 

The survey asks for information about the people your organisation works with and the interventions you carry out in order to ensure that the service best meets the needs of you, its users.  It should take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete, and you have the option to keep your responses anonymous.  The survey is open until 31 May 2020.

A link to the survey can be found here:


Previously, we have been supporting the development of the Justice Data Lab and we are currently working on the Employment data labs, in collaboration with other charitable organisations, such as ERSA, Impetus, the Youth Futures Foundation (YFF) and the Institute for Employment Studies (IES).

These Data Labs aim to open up Government administrative data to the social sector. That way, charities, funders, government bodies and social enterprises can better understand the impact of their services on beneficiaries. You can find out more about this and other data labs here.

Should you have any questions, please get in touch with Rosario Piazza, Principal Data at NPC (rosario.piazza@thinkNPC.org) or the Employment Data Lab team at DWP by emailing Luke Barclays at luke.barclays@dwp.gov.uk.

Thanks for taking the time!
