Understanding needs and issues in a community are the first steps to being able to solve them. This is what the Vital Signs programme does.

It measures the social temperature of different cities and communities across the UK to uncover the areas that need the most help.

Vital Signs is not just based on government statistics – it also looks at the needs and attitudes of local communities. Beyond numbers and statistics, Vital Signs can also help us understand what the implications of the findings are.
