Vital signs is a way of presenting a picture of an area using local statistics combined with the views of the people who live there. The results will help us give grants that are better targeted and inform the work of other local agencies.
– reporting on the vitality of South Yorkshire communities through the combination of community views and local and national statistics
– highlighting priority social issues for our region to allow for more targeted interventions
– proposing ways in which local philanthropy can be directed to respond to social needs in the future
Vital Signs reporting is undertaken each year by Community Foundations across the UK. You can find out more about the results in other regions, here.
