Overview & Introduction

Welcome to Cumbria’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).  The JSNA is an assessment of the current and future health and social care needs of Cumbria’s local communities.  Findings from the JSNA support the development of a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Cumbria that sets out priorities to improve health and wellbeing outcomes throughout the county and aims to reduce inequalities.

In addition to the JSNA chapters below, there is a series of up to date supporting briefings and documents available at the thematic website pages which you can navigate via the menu above, and here: Population; Children & Young People; Health and Social Care; Housing; Crime & Community Safety; Deprivation; Economy & Employment; and Environment.

Public Health England provide a key web platform which provides easy access to in-depth analysis of a wide range of health and health related data presented in thematic Profiles.  Links to specific profiles (interactive tools) are available in the sections below, and can be accessed here: Public Health Profiles.
