Learning VCS organisations are not all the same You may be working with a great variety of different individuals and organisations “keep it simple” – less opportunity for misunderstanding to arise Don’t limit yourself to large organisation Be aware of varied assets and limitations of the organisations you are working with VCS organisations are not a “cheap alternative” to a market research agency Learning and development key VCS organisations are not a “cheap alternative” to a market research agency – support key Projects are often as much about learning and development as gathering data VCS organisations are not the only ones who needs to learn and develop Co-production of tools, approaches and processes Feedback (Offer and Invite) Performance management Planning is key – some voluntary sector organisations have very little capacity

Investing in better homes reduces health inequalities Improve outcomes by combining lifestyle and environmental impact 2.5 million homes for 5 million people, and significant care + support providers Housing is a major determinant of health
What can housing do for our JSNA? Early intervention to manage demand / prevention Transform care pathways Make community connections + extend reach / capacity of local services and assets Future focus: pick-up emergent health needs
Data I: housing Homelessness CORE data Stock condition Tenancy survey Customer insight Neighbourhood plans
Data II: services and community intelligence Supporting People data Contextualising statutory data Place-shaping: mapping need Data on ‘Hidden health’
