Data collection is an essential part of social welfare research and advocacy. In recent years, under the open data plans implemented by the government, public bodies such as government departments and statutory bodies become more positive in opening up public information they manage for public use.  The collection and use of public data will help practitioners from the sector to explore and identify community characteristics for service development. In order to help practitioners grasp more understanding and technique in collecting and using public bodies’ data, the Council is going to organize the captioned workshop and has already invited Ms. Chloe Fung, a Research Assistant from the Faculty of Law of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, as the speaker of the workshop.  She will explain the methods and procedures of collecting data from public bodies, as well as the practical application points and precautions when accessing public data.  Details of the workshop are as follows:
