JSNA topic report: children and young people

2. Project aims and objectives

The aims and objectives of the HNA were to:

  • identify how the current 0 to 19 service is working and linking with other health and social care services (including voluntary and community sector (VCS) services)
  • identify national and local policy for promotion of the health of children and young people, intervention, and service provision
  • facilitate stakeholder engagement through consultation with commissioners, service providers and service users in order to determine their experiences and ideas on how prevention initiatives and services can be improved
  • produce an epidemiological needs assessment section (provided by BC), for integration into the report
  • use the above to review whether existing provision and service configuration best meets identified needs for the area and to identify gaps and potential options for improvement
