Led by Matt Weaver – Consultancy Director of Objectivity
Lambeth is the largest inner London borough with a diverse and welcoming population of more than 320,000 people.
Throughout the height of the pandemic, data was a key ingredient for delivering meaningful insights. Lambeth’s data Team worked with many council departments, the NHS, DHSC and PHE to help fight coronavirus.
The lessons we learned will continue to benefit the council in their goal to deliver equitable experiences and outcomes to their residents and communities
