Vital Signs

The Vital Signs 2019 Report ‘Taking the temperature of local communities’ shows that young people are the number one priority for 36% of people in the West of England. The 26-page Vital Signs report is unique as it collates data from many sources plus the results of a community survey Quartet Community Foundation conducted with over 500 local people. This year the Vital Signs report focuses on ten key areas of interest mapping trends, highlighting strengths and identifying areas for improvement across Bristol, B&NES,  North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
