Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a comprehensive and collaborative approach to understanding the health and wellbeing needs of our community. As a fundamental tool for decision-making, the JSNA plays a pivotal role in shaping policies and strategies that aim to improve the overall quality of life for residents within West Northamptonshire.

The JSNA brings together key stakeholders, including local authorities, health services, community organisations and the public to analyse and interpret a wide range of data related to health, social care, and wellbeing. By pooling our resources and expertise, we can create a holistic and evidence-based understanding of the current and future needs of our diverse population.

Our commitment to conducting a robust JSNA reflects our dedication to promoting health equity, addressing health inequalities and fostering a culture of inclusivity. This assessment serves as a powerful tool for identifying areas of improvement, allocating resources effectively, and developing targeted interventions that respond to the unique challenges and opportunities present in our community.

Throughout this collaborative process, we aim to engage with residents, listening to their voices and valuing their lived experiences. By incorporating local perspectives, we ensure that our strategies resonate with the needs and aspirations of the people we serve. The JSNA is not just a collection of documents; it is a dynamic and ongoing dialogue that seeks to adapt and evolve in response to the changing landscape of our community.

As we embark on this journey together, we invite you to explore the insights, analyses, and recommendations presented in the Local Authority JSNA suite of documents. Your involvement and feedback are crucial to the success of our collective efforts to create a healthier, happier, and more resilient community for everyone.

Thank you for joining us in this vital endeavour.

During this time, to request any of the documents in the following list from the previous JSNA webpage, please email [email protected].

To help meet our vision, a set of 10 ‘Live Your Best Life’ ambitions have been developed to deliver better outcomes for the people of West Northamptonshire over the coming years.
