Position

Associate Director for Autism, Bradford District Care Trust

Leading work in Bradford/West Yorks, to design, test and prove the benefits of applying data science and data tools to enable better coordination of front line services, to vulnerable children. We are focusing first on autistic children and their families. Our partnership includes the Universities of Leeds and Bradford, whose scientists and researchers are helping us: understand patterns of risk to children, as they vary by place; build data tools for front line professionals, to help them apply those insights in their work with individual children and families, and connect to each other, allowing coordination of support; and the use of data visualisation; empowering families and communities to interact with their data, improve it by layering on 'lived experience', and help to design more effective and efficient local systems, bespoke to the place and the people who live there.
