Clarion Futures share impact report

How do Housing Associations understand and demonstrate the impact or success of their community centres for their residents and communities?

This report has been researched and written by Kira Baker, a final-year undergraduate student at the University of Birmingham. The report was carried out as part of a student placement programme with Clarion Futures, under their Community Assets team.

This report is centred around the fundamental research question: ‘How do Housing Associations understand and demonstrate the impact or success of their community centres for their residents and communities’. The intention was to take the broad term of ‘impact’ and consider what that means when applied to a community centre. Overall, this report intends to give a fresh and updated snapshot of community centres, to gain insight into the specific impacts they are having on the most important people that they serve, and to pinpoint the next areas for development in this respect.
