Vital Signs 2019

Vital Signs MK 2019

Vital Signs MK is an annual publication designed to round up and highlight the most current research on the communities of Milton Keynes and present it in an easy-to-read format. 

This year’s publication focuses on 11 key areas of interest within Milton Keynes, mapping trends, highlighting our strengths and identifying challenges we face. The full Vital Signs report that covers all themes as this one does, is published every three years. During the years in between, a shorter Vital Signs Update report is published, looking at fewer themes.

This year, the report looks at: Strong Communities, Work & the Economy, Education, Diversity, Disadvantage & Poverty, Housing, Crime & Safety, Health & Wellbeing, Transport, The Local Environment and Arts & Heritage.

Milton Keynes Community Foundation will continue our series of Vital Thinking events in collaboration with our local partners and community groups. Last year we held Vital Thinking events around mental health and disadvantage and poverty creating a better understanding of what we can do, as a community, to address the causes and impacts of these issues.
