Oxfordshire Mind Database

Oxfordshire Mind is the leading mental health charity in Oxfordshire. They asked us to build them a database that could be used by all their volunteers to update information and allow the admin team to run reports for funders.


Oxfordshire Mind asked Alberon to provide a database for outcomes and client information monitoring. They needed to provide data on how many people they help and how to the local PCT (Primary Care Trust) who help with their funding.

Their previous reports process was very manual and paper-driven. They wanted a database to collect the data and produce reports to show what had been done and monitor progress. Since they run projects in various parts of Oxfordshire, working in unstructured settings, they preferred a web-based solution which volunteers could access from anywhere.

The system needed to be easy to use for their numerous volunteers, and provide different levels of access.

“Due to the nature of our projects, we needed a system that securely stored the data we collect, that didn’t involve paper. The new system allows us to do this safely, is simple to use and cuts down on the significant time workers spent on collecting data each quarter. We are also a lot more confident in the quality of the data.”
