About us

At Northpoint we pride ourselves on being able to effectively measure and evidence the outcomes and impact of our work, and we use qualitative and quantitative data to monitor and improve our services. Since we were first commissioned to work in Calderdale in 2014 we have introduced reliable and accurate data collection and reporting systems. Our reports have provided clear evidence that the experience of young people who access our mental health services has improved significantly.

The expansion of our work in Calderdale has been built on our ability to report on how many people we have helped, how much support we have given them, and how it has helped them.

Monitoring is based on key performance indicators that have been developed with input from service users (young people and families).This information plays a vital role in service development and commissioning arrangements. It is also used to help the services manage its limited resources in the most effective ways.

The data lead will join our friendly, skilled and enthusiastic team, and will work closely with service managers and administrators to further develop our data and reporting systems and processes.
