Strategic Assessments

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

The JSNA Demography Chapter (PDF Format 6.4MB) outlines a number of critical groups considered to be in need of intervention based aroundJSNA Logo policy priorities found at both national and local level. Whilst these have been divided into a number of sub-sections, neither the groups nor the health issues they face sit in isolation. The continued growth of the population and increasing concentration of more heterogeneous groups and their needs ensures that the county’s demographic will continue to evolve.

 The Childrens JSNA (PDF Format 7.3MB) indicates that while the county as a whole performs similarly to national and regional averages in most indicators related to health, wellbeing and education of children, young people and families, certain areas remain a concern (domestic violence and teenage pregnancy in Corby, for example) or are starting to become more of an issue (increase in self-harm and mental ill health in children and young people across the county, significant increases in the numbers of domestic violence incidents in certain areas of the county etc).

 Further information and related documents are available on the JSNA page

LEA Icon A significant strength in terms of employment and skills is that Job Seekers Allowance claimants in Northamptonshire have been consistently reduced.

 More houses are being built in the county compared to other LEP’s and that house prices are rising by more than the England average means that Northamptonshire has a healthy housing market.
