Children and young people JSNA

The Children’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies ‘the big picture’ with regards to the health and wellbeing needs and inequalities of the population in Redcar and Cleveland.

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) reports on the main issues affecting the health and wellbeing of the population of Redcar and Cleveland to help strategic planning, commissioning of services and interventions to help improve outcomes for the local population and reduce health inequalities.

This JSNA sets out the high level needs of children and young people. It outlines services to meet these needs, highlights evidence of good practice and sets out implications and recommendations.

The aim is to improve outcomes for children and young people in Redcar and Cleveland by informing and influencing commissioning and service delivery across the breadth of local children’s services.

The JSNA is underpinned by partnership working, community engagement and evidence of effectiveness. It supports commissioning processes for health, council and community organisations in Redcar and Cleveland.

The Joint South Tees Health & Wellbeing Board has overall responsibility for the JSNA.

The development of the JSNA is led by Public Health South Tees but is a collaborative process with partner agencies across the Children’s Trust.
