Salford City Council tackle health inequalities

Overview: Salford City Council focus on tackling health inequalities

Salford City Council use segmentation data to focus on tackling health inequalities

The Salford City Council’s Public Health Intelligence team have a particular focus on tackling health inequalities. Alongside seven other priorities that make up the “Great Eight” for the City Council as a whole, understanding the needs of the population’s health and wellbeing was key to informing the strategy of the overall Locality Plan.

Salford City Council

Challenge overview

The aim of the JSSNA (Joint Strategic Strengths and Needs Assessment) programme is to help Salford City Council and its partners understand their population and to promote thinking about the differences and similarities between the communities living within the city. This encourages the conversation around population diversity and the inequalities which may arise as a result, both of which are essential when designing services to ensure fair and equal accessibility for all communities.

Another objective of the JSSNA is to promote the value of engaging with Salford’s Public Health team to collectively meet partnership aims. Through engaging with Experian and using Mosaic as a tool for profiling areas, Salford are championing evidence-based decision making during the development and delivery of public health services at a local level, with the aim of reducing inequalities.

Company Bio:

The city of Salford covers 37 square miles and is made up of eight neighbourhoods and 20 wards. Some 269,000 people living in 126,000 homes are proud to call Salford their home.

The city is predominantly a mixture of young, single people in their 20s and 30s who rent their homes; families with school children living on limited budgets in low-cost homes and younger household homeowners.

Almost half of households in Salford have residents whose social circumstances suggest that they may need high levels of support to help them manage their health and finances.

Industry: Public sector
Mosaic delivers what we need it to. It helps us meet the twin aims of better understanding our population and how best to reach those we need to. The most value is gained from the huge number of measures available and then being able to map that data down to the most granular household level.
Gordon Adams, Strategic Intelligence Manager at Salford City Council

Solution overview

Salford’s Public Health Intelligence team required a common currency across partner organisations within the city. By choosing Experian’s Mosaic segmentation, Salford were able to apply a consistent principle of geodemography across all their households. This provided an easy-to-understand framework which now serves as a foundation to make informed decisions on where and how to address public health issues. The framework was applied to Salford households to create the Mosaic Profile for Salford, a report which contributes significantly to our understanding of the local population in Salford and forms part of the JSSNA.

Experian's Mosaic allowed Salford City Council to segment their audience, creating a framework for better understanding of how and where to address various public health issues
