Community Information Toolkit

Community information is information that helps citizens with their day-to-day problems and enables them to fully participate as members of their democratic community.

Community information as defined by Pettigrew  (1996, p. 351) is any information that helps citizens with their day-to-day problems and enables them to fully participate as members of their democratic community. It is information pertaining to the availability of human services such as health care, financial assistance, housing, transportation, education and childcare services; as well as information on recreation programs, clubs, community events, and information about all levels of government.With this definition in mind, I've documented what I see to be important tools that will enable you to create and communicate data that is relevant to your community using the SAcommunity platform .

If you still have questions about how to manage your information on SAcommunity, then please, get in touch with us and we'll help you out. Pettigrew, K. E.  (1996).
