Doncaster’s demography Goal To provide the latest demographic information about the borough. Key messages Doncaster, in common with most other areas, has an aging population. Over the next 10 years the number of people aged over 64 could increase by around 1,000 each year, the numbers of residents aged over 74 could increase by a little under 500 each year. The Index of Multiple Deprivation was updated last year and showed that Doncaster remains a relatively deprived borough with 21% of residents living in England’s 10% most deprived population.
Community Health Profiles Goals To update the community profiles published in To provide the latest health intelligence to support resource allocation and the identification of health needs in geographical communities. Key messages All 88 profiles will be published in the Doncaster together website: Each community in Doncaster faces different health challenges. For some of Doncaster's communities these challenges are numerous and complex.
Children’s Centre area profiles Goals To provide health intelligence for all 21 Children’s Centre’s in Doncaster. To enable Children's Centre’s to assess health needs in their catchments. Key messages Similar to the Community Profiles, each Children’s Centre area faces a unique set of challenges. All 21 profiles have been published on the Doncaster together website: The profiles were created to align the ‘Starting Well’ workstream in Public Health with ongoing projects in the Council. Public Health intelligence products will benefit from this continued collaboration, improving design and dissemination so that documents are of use to a wider partnership audience.
An assessment of ‘assets’ – Mental Health Goals To develop an agreed systematic approach to assessing community views and concerns and feed these into the JSNA process. To gage the views of the voluntary sector in relation to mental health services. Key messages The economic recession has increased the demand for services. The voluntary sector is also seeing an increase or change in demand due to national policy, e.g. the introduction of work capability assessments and personal budgets. Overall, services provide well for those with severe mental health issues but there is scope to be more preventative; building resilience in the wider population who may develop problems in the future. There is no complete picture of how mental health services are structured and delivered within the voluntary sector. A health asset is any factor or resource which enhances the ability of individuals or communities to maintain or sustain health or wellbeing.
