London homeless health needs assessment toolkit

This is an interactive guide designed to support local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, and integrated care systems across London to conduct a homeless health needs assessment.

Conducting a health needs assessment is key to developing and delivering integrated care. Local Authorities must do a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment of the health and wellbeing of their local population. This includes assessing health needs of people who are or have been homeless.

Four steps to a homeless health needs assessment

This guide outlines the four steps involved in completing a homeless health needs assessment:

1 Set the scene: Identify relevant national, regional and local statistics, resources and guidance

2 Learn from others: Identify other good examples of health needs assessments, and gather the evidence of what works

3 Assess your own locality: Carry out your own local health needs assessment

4 Make a plan: Analyse your findings and make recommendations
