Principles met

  • We will develop systems that enable citizens to be equal partners in designing and commissioning public services and in determining the use of public resources.

All local authorities face the challenge of understanding the health and wellbeing of the local population to efficiently allocate resources. Publicly available data exists at a local level for many health and wellbeing outcomes (such as the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities’ Public Health Profiles), this information is not exhaustive and not always at the geography needed (e.g., wards, Middle Super Output Area). Similarly, local populations’ changing needs, and priorities for resource allocation present gaps in the information we have about our local residents. To bridge these gaps in intelligence, Kirklees Council’s Data and Insight Service uses population surveys and a partnership approach to better understand the health and wellbeing Kirklees residents.
