The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) pulls together information about local health as well as care and support available locally. It includes a number of documents on topics such as cancer, diet and nutrition.

It aims to put these in context, exploring how Richmond upon Thames compares with other areas locally, regionally and nationally. It also examines what services we are currently providing, what works well and what could be improved.

Community Links

To help support and build greater community involvement the Council delivers a Community Links project. Community Links act as a source of information for each village area, working with communities, groups, the Council and other partners to:

  • Inform residents about what the council and the community are doing to deliver the village plan.
  • Provide residents and local groups with information about opportunities for how they can get involved in their local communities, as well as helping residents/groups find the support, advice and resources needed to help make it happen.

Community Links keep residents in touch with what is happening by:

  • Social media – your community links officer updates Richmond and Richmond Hill’s Facebook page and the Community Links Twitter page on a daily basis, posting news and events from your area. Follow the pages to keep in touch with what is happening, and contact us if you would like to use the pages to advertise your own events.
  • Running the Village Groups Forum – a forum for local community/amenity groups to come together and promote greater involvement, engagement and understanding with regard to protection and enhancement of the borough’s environment and character.
  • Sending out emails to residents to inform them of when Village Plan consultation events are taking place.
  • Regularly visiting services and groups in the community to offer advice and support. Please contact us if you represent a community group and would like us to visit your organisation.

Lynette Lawson-Tyers is now the dedicated Community Links Officer for Richmond and Richmond Hill. Please feel free to contact her:
