How community investment professionals can effectively communicate the full impact of the work that they do.
In the rapidly changing environment in housing, it is now more important than ever that Community Investment professionals can assert the work that they do has a positive impact on the organisation’s bottom line.
This report is the culmination of a long-term project involving six housing providers and an innovative approach to examining, amalgamating and processing distinct datasets.
Using a data science method, involving the use of propensity scores, the project was able to make the first attempt within the sector to quantify the extent to which community investment activity is actually associated with lower costs to the business.
The research presented in this report has the potential to arm Community Investment teams with an analytically robust approach and insight into the ability to evidence and support the work that they do. It also has the exciting potential to inform future investment and activity in areas like employment, financial inclusion and digital inclusion.
We are thrilled to be launching the results and findings of the project. These results provide a foundation for Community Investment professionals to communicate the full impact of the work that they do to the rest of the business.
