Community Insight

Community Insight is an affordable, accessible geospatial tool that gives you insights into your local community. 

“It’s part of our strategic approach: it helps us understand our customers and their communities, and from that we can develop a bespoke social investment plan.”

As social housing organisations turn their attention to their future role in place and how they can best use their resources to be a key part of the recovery and reset that is needed, it’s more important than ever that we use every resource we can to help us to understand our neighbourhoods, so we can target our limited resources where they’re most needed.

This is where Community Insight can play a critical role.

Built on over 1,150 datasets, Community Insight gives social housing organisations a deeper understanding of their local communities.

It's easy to use. You define an area and the information about the community in which you're interested. The area might be as big as a local authority or as small as a street. It's as simple as that.

It's quick to use. You can generate a 50-page, in-depth report about your chosen local community in just 10 minutes.

And it will save you money. It will make your local, community investments more targeted. And it will reduce the amount of time you spend on business planning, confident in the knowledge that the data you're using is up-to-date.

“Community Insight is one of the most powerful tools in the toolkit for providing insight into our business.”

Community Insight is jointly owned and developed by HACT and OCSI.
