Open Data

We have released a range of data including grants we have awarded, statistics on the groups and volunteers on our database and the results from our State of the Sector survey.

What is open data?
Macc subscribes to the following definition of open data:

  • Open data are data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone
  • It is subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike
  • Open data are the building blocks of open knowledge
  • Open knowledge is what open data becomes when it’s useful, usable and use

Macc is committed to a strong community and voluntary sector in Manchester. We believe that open data can assist with this ambition, through enabling transparency of our actions, in the form of open data.

Our open data goals
When publishing data about our work, Macc has three main aims:

  • That our data are useful
    We wish to publish data that bring value to those building a stronger community and voluntary sector.
  • That our data are 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 and accessible way, and provide regular narrative and understanding to the stakeholders.

In this context, Macc 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 sector in Manchester.

Open Data Policy
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.

Macc encourages others to access, use and discuss our open data. We strive towards a strong community and voluntary sector in the City of Manchester, and value the contributions and insights that can be gleaned through use of data. Our full code of conduct can be found here
