Early adulthood JSNA

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future.

Early adulthood is a key transition period when young adults become more independent. The JSNA recognises young adulthood as being 16-25 years old.

We want all borough young adults to be in education, employment or training at the end of compulsory education. We also want young adults to have the necessary knowledge and skills about wellness to remain healthy and become independent.

At 24 years of age, we want Rochdale borough residents to not smoke, do sufficient physical activity and be a healthy weight. These are important outcomes likely to support long term adult health. To help the borough's future, it's important that young residents gain qualifications so that the overall workforce becomes more skilled.
