Arts organisations will for the first time have to provide data on the socio-economic background of employees as a step towards tackling working class gaps in their workforce.

Officials at Arts Council England (ACE) said it would start monitoring for the first time next year, adding to the data it collects around gender, ethnicity and disability.

Revaluing parks and green spaces

Revaluing parks and green spaces | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Parks and green spaces are arguably the most universal of all our public services. They are used by the entire community, from pre-school children through to retired adults. Green space is a defining part of our local landscape and these publicly owned, civic spaces have something to offer to all.

Whilst we might think our parks and green spaces are pleasant places to stroll in the sun – or play on the swings with children or grandchildren, our new research, Revaluing Parks and Green Spaces, shows these spaces actually deliver over £34 billion of health and well-being benefits to UK residents each year. This represents people enjoying greater life satisfaction including improved physical and mental health, directly from regular use of parks and green spaces.
