What is Vital Signs?
Understanding needs and issues in a community are the first step 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 most help.
Community Foundations that run this programme then guide the generosity of local philanthropists towards the areas that need it the most.
The measures are based around 10 social themes, ranging from housing and homelessness to education and learning. Vital Signs identifies how well the region is performing in relation the rest of the UK, assessing local perceptions of the key issues in the issues which matter most to them.
Vital Signs are 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.
