Communities of interest JSNA


Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future.

The term 'vulnerable groups' is broad and is used to highlight groups of people who may have different needs to other similar aged people. It doesn’t mean that every person belonging to that group is vulnerable. Vulnerable groups include the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, homeless people, refugees, people of different ethnic backgrounds, ex-military personnel and people with disabilities.

The Communities of interest summary part of the JSNA highlights the key population groups who might have different needs compared to similar-aged people in the whole population. However, it has a particular focus on carers and their needs.
