Children in Suffolk
As part of the Suffolk JSNA, we are endeavouring to publish new and informative content that helps tell the Suffolk story through data.
Suffolk through a child's eyes: Annual Public Health Report 2019
- In 2019, we focused on children and young people for the topic of the Annual Public Health Report (Suffolk through a child's eyes).
- This short video was produced by Signals, who also produced our Annual Public Health Report video.
- The video focuses on two fictional children growing up in Suffolk (Noah and Amelia). Their stories are told with real data, and from insight gathered when we compiled the Annual Public Health Report.
- The aim of the video is to raise awareness of some of the opportunities and challenges young people experience growing up in Suffolk, but through data.
You can also read a transcript of the video.
We hope you will find the video engaging, and then look at some of the wider data available.

- Childhood Local Data on Risks and Needs (CHLDRN) from The Children's Commissioner for England aims to provide the most complete picture of the numbers of children at risk in England, at both a national and local level. It makes available over 100 indicators across different age ranges and types of risk, and allows you to explore how these vary across England.
Children in families at risk – Local area maps: The Children's Commissioner has produced maps projecting proportions of children living in households where an adult has any of the so called ‘toxic trio’ factors present, or where multiple factors exist in the same household.
The Children's Society - Local data packs: Each year, The Children's Society produces a report on children's lives in every local area across England and Wales. They hold localised data from a combination of official and public sources, as well as information from their own research. They collate some of the key issues impacting children's lives across the country and make recommendations for policy change to support children and young people's wellbeing.
