August 2018 Update
The York JSNA group have published the “Starting and Growing Well: Inequality Report” which looks into the differing experiences of children and young people as they grow up in York. The report focuses on three interlinking themes; childhood obesity, self-harm in young adults, and childhood poverty.
This is the first of a series of inequality reports that we intend to publish, each focusing on a different theme from the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The next inequality report will explore inequalities in mental health in York and will be published in autumn 2018. If you would like to contribute to this or any future inequality reports then please get in touch.
People who are homeless represent a small proportion of the total population of York, but have a disproportionately high prevalence of physical and mental ill health and have a significant need for statutory and voluntary sector health and social care services. This report looks at the views of service users and professionals in York and identified a selection of key challenges for the city. The needs assessment was instigated in part to support the York Homelessness Strategy 2018-2023.
