Using data and analytics to transform the lives of New Zealand’s most vulnerable kids.
As a provider of specialist home and school social services to New Zealanders between the ages of 5 and 12, Stand Children’s Services is one of the nation’s most recognisable charity organisations.
Stand has been making New Zealand a safer, healthier and happier place for children since 1919. Almost a century later, the methods and tools that Stand uses have evolved. Information from thousands of case files provides insight into the organisation’s internal processes and is helping improve services to vulnerable children and their families. Richard Parry, a ten-year veteran of Stand and current CIO, spoke to us about the potential for deep analytics in the organisation, and how Stellar Consulting is helping to provide Stand with new insights.
“We knew there was a lot more our data could tell us, but we just didn’t have the tools or resources to interrogate it effectively. It was challenging for our front-line staff and leadership teams to easily gain insights into how things were progressing internally, or to easily quantify the difference that we are making.”
