Statisticians for Society

As the professional body for statisticians and a charity which promotes statistics, data and evidence for the public good, we’ve always encouraged our members to offer their time pro bono to good causes.

Volunteering in this way is something of a tradition in other professions such as law, but until now, there has been no formal framework to facilitate this for our members. So we have launched Statisticians for Society, an initiative which enables statisticians to support charities and other socially useful initiatives that need their professional expertise.

You don’t have to be a RSS member to take part in Statisticians for Society. You just need to have the enthusiasm to volunteer your time and skills to help make the world a better place. 

To get involved, please register with one or all of our delivery partners: Statistics without Borders (SWB), DataKind UK, The Operational Research Society and the Government Analytical Volunteer Programme

Each partner has a different focus and way of engaging volunteers. Let us know how you get on!
