Frequently Asked Questions about open data

What’s so special about open data?

Quite often, open datasets are made available to the public for the first time. Previously, they could have been locked away with special access rights or needed certain knowhow. In some cases the information might already exist as word documents or PDFs, for example. The difference with open data is that it is published in “data formats” (such as spreadsheets) that make it easier for people to access, analyse and – sometimes – mix with other datasets.

Why is it relevant to the voluntary and community sector?

Open data is linked to many of the issues that are key to the sector – transparency, accountability and openness. Open data can assist VCS organisations to access insights and information that may have previously been out of reach.

When publishing data about our work, the Community Foundation for Calderdale has three main aims:

That our data is useful

  • We wish to publish data that will bring value to those building a stronger community and voluntary sector.

That our data is meaningful

  • We wish to publish data that add to the ongoing dialogue and discussion about the sector.

That our data are accessible

  • We wish to publish data in an open accessible way, and provide regular narrative and understanding to our stakeholders. In this context, the Community Foundation for Calderdale aims to operate an open data policy that is robust and practical, leading to greater engagement in the issues faced by the community and voluntary sectors in the Calderdale District.

Our Open Data Policy explains what open data is, why we are releasing the data, our goals, commitments, principles and practices, how you can use our open data and our Code of Conduct when using the data.
