Reporting on Sustainability for Health and Wellbeing Boards

Measuring, monitoring and reporting on sustainability through the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) supports the assurance process for meeting legal, reputational and policy requirements. 

Every place will have a different set of geographical, social, economic and demographic set of circumstances which means that a local approach is needed to support communities to thrive, be more sustainable, resilient and healthy in changing times and climates.

JSNAs report progress on Health and Wellbeing Strategies which can deliver sustainability by enabling local communities to thrive and prosper.
