Stress highlighted as a main priority for East Riding residents
22nd May 2017
As part of the consultation HWERY spoke with 1156 people across the East Riding. The Residents we spoke to had to place one token into one of ten jars all of which represented different health and social care priorities. From this consultation HWERY identified the key priorities of not only the overall population but 5 different age groups. These age groups included:
16 – 25
26 – 45
46 – 65
The report provides a comprehensive breakdown of all the priorities and the priorities according to age demographic.
“This piece of work is about highlighting the needs of the public. Not only is it important that we demonstrate the priorities of the wider East Riding community, but breaking down the priorities by age group is equally important because health and social care needs differ as people transition through life. This report will allow us to inform the professional stakeholders we work with about the needs of the East Riding community” Delivery Manager, Matthew Fawcett
The priorities report will help shape the work HWERY do over the next twelve months by taking into account the themes from this piece of work.
A fall in property prices as a consequence of Covid19 could reduce the number of affordable homes that get built in the countryside whilst larger, more inappropriate development could get the go-ahead warns charity, Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE).W
We know that many rural communities are supportive of small-scale housing schemes that are sensitive to the look and feel of the local area and which create homes that are affordable to local residents. But the fallout from Covid19 could up-end the viability of such schemes.
Rural Housing Week is an annual celebration of rural housing when organisations work with external stakeholders to reinforce the message that housing is vital for the survival of rural communities and services.
