Renaisi, in partnership with the Institute of Community Cohesion (ICoCo), has been commissioned to complete a community profiling exercise for the London Borough of Croydon, to be completed by February 2009.
Croydon Council and the local strategic partnership Croydon Together, are keen to comprehensively understand the characteristics and needs of their local communities, with particular emphasis on community cohesion. Cohesion is a priority for the borough as Croydon is facing one of the highest rises in its ethnic minority population over the next 20 years compared to the rest of London.
The community profiling project will initially involve an in-depth analysis of the Index of Multiple Deprivation and Experian Mosaic, alongside a range of socio-economic and demographic statistics. This will be set alongside a mapping of community assets and activity to produce insightful perspectives on Croydon’s areas.
The interim conclusions will be supplemented by a series of selected Stakeholder Focus Groups that will road test the evidence and its implications. The final results will be expressed in an accessible profile format, supplemented by GIS mapping, and be publicly available via the Council website.
