Joint Strategic Needs Assessments

The JSNA analyse the health needs of populations to inform and guide commissioning of health, well-being and social care services within local authority areas. The JSNA will underpin the health and well-being strategies, a proposed new statutory requirement and commissioning plans.


City Plan

Launched in the summer of 2013, the City Plan aims to create 7,500 jobs for local people through projects and investments that will drive the delivery of a clear set of ambitions.

Achieving these ambitions will help Hull seize the once-in-a-generation opportunity it now has to reassert its role as a gateway to Europe and part of the Northern Powerhouse of cities that will help to rebalance the economic, social and cultural fabric of the UK.


Hull Data Observatory

The Observatory is an online resource that provides a "one-stop" source of social and economic information for anyone with an interest in Kingston upon Hull and its local communities.  Covering a range of themes and drawing on both national and local data, the Hull Data Observatory provides both pre-formatted Profiles as well as access to raw information in the format of Maps and Data Tables. The system also stores useful Resources such as documents, strategic assessments, plans and policies.


The Hull Data Observatory aims to create a clearer and more joined up understanding of the city and its residents. Through having a single data store it is hoped to improve the consistency of the data collected and through a range of tools and processes store, analyse and publish data in order to improve understanding and decision making across the city.
