The UBDC is part of the ESRC funded UK Data Service, and is worth a look. They specialise in all things Urban, from neighbourhoods, social inclusion and justice to transportation and housing. They offer access to a wide spectrum of data and can help researchers manipulate and link data. They also offer expert support for researchers including tools and software. If you are a researcher, you might be interested in their training and skills development, which covers technical, methodological and policy-focused sessions, both national and global.
