  2. To work with other organisations to influence research programmes and increase the focus on the role and work of civil society in London
  1. To identify and promote the use of tools that can help organisations across the sector to collect and use data
  2. To advise and assist members of London Plus networks to identify, prepare and present data for publication
  3. To work with other organisations supporting data literacy across the sector
