The Analytical Volunteer Programme (AVP) is an annual programme that arranges for government analysts to work in voluntary sector organisations on short term placements.
The programme provides an excellent opportunity for voluntary
sector organisations to benefit from free analytical expertise and
for government analysts to develop and build new skills.
Volunteers can contribute from half a day up to five days. The
time doesn't have to be taken in one chunk - for some projects it
may be more practical to provide some initial support for a day or
two, then some further help after a few weeks.
All voluntary sector organisations are welcome to apply for a
volunteer analyst. You can receive free analytical assistance in a
skilled area that you may not normally have access to.
- Enables organisations to use data to measure and improve their
impact, target work, apply for grants and streamline

able to replicate analysis
- Provides a level of analytical expertise to support a project
that the organisations wouldn't be confident in tackling
