Underpinning the ambitions of Fast Track Cardiff & Vale is the focus on engaging and empowering communities, and collecting and understanding data to drive innovation and improvements in services. Fast Track Cardiff aims to map all existing data and make sure it is put to use in the most effective way. We also direct the collection of new data and develop our understanding of attitudes and issues relating to data capture across organisations.
