Community Insight Australia is a translation of the UK Community Insight tool, a collaboration between housing think-do-tank Housing Associations’ Charitable Trust (HACT)and social policy data experts Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI). They were recently nominated for an Open Data Innovation Award by the Open Data Institute.
The Community Insight tool was formally launched by HACT and OCSI in 2013. The tool is currently used by over 80 UK organisations, including housing providers and UK Government agencies.
Community Insight (UK) are supporting the translation of their tool to Australia. HACT will help the Community Insight Australia team support users to get the most out of the tool and OSCI will build the Community Insight tool for Australian geographies and data.
