The aim of this project is to help develop an integrated, future-proof solution.

The project will analyse the current and potential future data-flow within the organisation. An information strategy will be developed to guide the organisation. The study will examine and explore the best ways to use the existing data to help VDS improve the quality and quantity of volunteering experiences.
