Joint Strategic Needs Assessments - voluntary sector Jo Whaley
I’ll cover…. The value of VCS to JSNA The value of the JSNA to the VCS How the VCS can input Anything else??
Value of the VCS to JSNA Unique evidence Needs- concerns- aspirations- challenges- resources in local communities (geography and interest) Service providers can share data and insight from experience Specialist organisations can act as an advocates for particular community interests, sharing their understanding Knowledge of routes to engagement with particular communities Co-design solutions with commissioners   Diagram 1
"It gives us access to a wider range of evidence that we would have otherwise. It provides us with links to ground level work.” Neil Bendel, Manchester Council "There is huge richness in the voluntary sector because they know the communities better than we ever can." Shahed Ahmad, Director of Public Health, Enfield Council
Co-design- gathering evidence for how to solve the issues VCS insight on how to tailor interventions for local communities Locally tailored services for specific community needs “Evidenced” public health interventions Enhanced with VCS intelligence Statutory data sets demonstrate issues
What’s in it for us? Integral to the continuous process of strategic assessment and planning Must inform local authority, CCG and NHS England commissioning plans Commissioners won’t fund something that isn’t evidenced-especially in this financial climate
How to input to JSNA Find out what yours looks like- What’s in it (and what’s not)? How does the local authority consult What’s the timetable? Who compiles it? Is there a JSNA working group? What VCS organisations feed in already?
Respond to calls for evidence Is your CVS involved? Healthwatch? Contact the LA officer lead on JSNA Talk to commissioners you know Routes in to JSNA
Some examples- Write a JSNA chapter- learning disability in Cheshire East Calls to shape the JSNA- Manchester Working with public health- Wakefield rapid review

What evidence do you have? What information does the health and wellbeing board have (open source)? How does your JSNA structure information? Telling your story Make your message easy to “cut and paste”
Intelligence you have Hard data Outputs e.g. activities undertaken and the number (and type) of beneficiaries- demonstrate change in demand and existing need for commissioners Outcomes from services/interventions - changes, benefits, learning or other effects of the work (external evaluations) Impact - long term change that occurs as a result of an intervention- social, economic and environmental change. Softer intelligence Insight- know what is happening NOW, what people are saying Knowledge of how to link in with particular communities
LOADS of information available online! PHE Knowledge and Data Gateway Outcomes frameworks - Health Profiles data sets!!! Covers everything…e.g. Dementia Sexual health Older people’s health and wellbeing atlas Disability Cancer Hospital admissions… Unit cost database- NICE Evidence, guidelines, standards and costings All on…
