The Data Saves Lives project was commissioned by the Health Foundation and lead by the the Health eResearch Centre at the University of Manchester. The project’s aim was to understand how people use technology to support their health and wellbeing.


Our Network’s Role

The Centre commissioned Macc and Inspiring Communities Together, two of our Social Licensees, to run a series of Community Reporting for Insight programmes in partnership with Age UK in Manchester and Salford. The Community Reporters trained on these programmes collected stories of how people use technology for their own health and wellbeing. The stories were then used by the Health eResearch Centre to inform their research and provide user perspectives on the ways in which technology can support people’s health and wellbeing.
