  • How to use the Community Insight Australia tool

    Date: Thursday 23 March 2023

    Time: 10.30am - 11.30am

    The Community Insight Australia tool gives you publicly available data in an easy format to help you better understand your community, or the community you work in.


    In this session Emma Tomkinson, Founder and Social Impact Analyst at Community Insight Australia, will demonstrate how you can utilise the tool on the WA Community Impact Hub to:


    - Interact with and explore community data through a visual map.

    - View data by themes such as health, education, housing, and population.

    - Drill down on specific communities using the zoom function, or quickly compare how different regions are tracking.

    - Learn more about the data and what it can tell you using the information function.


    The Community Insight Australia tool provides you with information to make locally informed decisions to target community initiatives or services. Join this session to learn how to use this resource efficiently and effectively.

  • Introduction to the Community Impact Planner

    Date: Wednesday 26 April 2023

    Time: 10.30am - 11.30am

    Platform: Teams Webinar


    When planning your project, being clear on what you are trying to accomplish will help you figure out how to achieve great outcomes. The Community Impact Planner contains three tools that can help you plan your project and present it to others: theory of change, logic model and an evaluation planner.


    1. Understand your vision: Use a Theory of Change to create a clear overall vision for your project. This tool covers what issue your project will address, how it will address it and what outcomes it will achieve.

    2. Plan your impact: Use a Logic Model to plan out your project in more detail and identify how the project will have an impact.

    3. Measure your outcomes: Use an Evaluation Planner to outline how you’ll measure the success of your project. This includes planning what data you’ll need to collect to track your outcomes


    Led by Melanie Bainbridge, Senior Manager Knowledge & Insights at Lotterywest, this session will introduce the three tools of the Impact Planner, sharing ideas on how to effectively utilise them.
