A free interactive tool that allows users to calculate the ethnic profile of their area. The profiler, created by a team based at University’s Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), calculates age structures for any local authority in England or Wales according to ethnic group, religion or national identity. Users can now see data which compares age, ethnic groups, religion and national identity for wherever they live, also allowing users to compare the data for two areas at local authority or national level.

This report was produced in July 2010 by Annette Aitken on behalf of Public Health Bolton. The purpose of this report was to consider the needs of refugees  and asylum seeking families with young children, under the age of five years, who are resident in Bolton. The range of support services available to them to meet those needs is also considered within this report. It examines the health issues typical for these families and it gives an insight into these groups’ experiences relating to accessing universal services, such as General Practitioners and Children’s Centres.

This Guide is written to assist those writing a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) as part of the process of commissioning. This Guide will help planners and commissioners to build an objective analysis of population needs, taking into account issues of perception and prioritisation. The Guide is arranged in three parts:

  • a ‘How To’ section
  • a set of notable examples
  • a series of appendices with more detailed information
