Vital Signs Survey

Continuing to deliver on our aim for building a strong Southern Highlands community

Vital Signs is a community-driven data program that uses local knowledge to measure the vitality of a community and support action towards improving the collective quality of life. First developed by the Toronto Foundation in 2001​, it is now used by community foundations globally under licence from Community Foundations of Canada​. Community Foundations Australia manages the licensing of Vital Signs for the Australian network.

The Vital Signs program involves gathering community knowledge and data and publishing accessible reports on significant social and economic trends that tell the story of how communities are faring in key quality-of-life areas.
