Building Thriving Communities Report

The first Community Investment Report captures the considerable impact of housing associations’ range of services in neighbourhoods across Northern Ireland.

As part of its work in assisting the sector to maximise its social impact, NIHACT commissioned a survey to capture the scope and scale of community investment activity being undertaken by housing associations.

The report is available here: Building Thriving Communities (pdf) or in hard copy.

Launched at an event in Parliament Buildings, the report demonstrates the importance of community investment to our housing associations. With more than 25,000 people benefitting from 300 activities such as employment and education programmes, money advice schemes, community facilities and health and wellbeing initiatives, housing associations and their partners annually invest around £9m to support and develop local communities with almost all associations expecting to increase this funding in the coming years.

The true value of community investment activities is not captured in figures alone and so the report also includes case studies to show the real difference being made in the lives of housing association tenants.
