Children's Integrated Needs Assessment

The 2019 children’s integrated needs assessment (2019 ChINA) presents a broad range of information about children and young people living in Herefordshire.   Recognising that much is already known about Herefordshire’s children and young people, the 2019 ChINA focused on specific topics that were identified as requiring an improved understanding. 

The 2019 ChINA has therefore been designed as a suite of thematic reports, allowing the addition of further reports as new topics are prioritised and identified as needing a closer look.  The thematic reports are listed below.
