The CYPP is informed by comprehensive needs assessment, which ensure that activities are targeted to those groups and areas in greatest need. There are two key needs assessments:
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2010 was completed by Hampshire County Council and the Primary Care Trust. It represents a major review of the health and well-being needs of local people and is used to help plan health and care services.
The Child Poverty Needs Assessment 2011 1mb provides an overview of the nature of child poverty in Hampshire. By providing a shared understanding and focus, it helps partners to plan activities that will address child poverty in the county.
The action plan establishes the overarching activities for delivery of each of the priorities, providing the framework for monitoring success. It is updated every year and is available online at: www.hants.gov.uk/cypp
