Becky Needham, Road Safety and Evaluation Officer, RoSPA

Becky joined RoSPA in July 2016 after completing a degree in Sociology at the University of Birmingham.

Over the last four years, Becky has worked on a varied range of projects within RoSPA’s road safety policy team. This year, RoSPA has conducted research to understand what impact joint strategic needs assessments have had on the delivery of local road safety programmes. This research involved a survey of local authority practitioners and a group interview with road safety practitioners. During her presentation, Becky will present the findings of the survey and group interview.

Presentation: What impact have Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) had on the delivery of local road safety programmes?

This year, RoSPA has conducted research to understand what impact joint strategic needs assessments have had on the delivery of local road safety programmes.

This research involved a survey of local authority practitioners and a group interview with road safety practitioners.

During her presentation, Becky will explore whether road safety was integrated into local authority JSNAs and to what extent, how involved road safety practitioners feel in the development of their organisation’s JSNA and what impact this has had on the delivery of local road safety programmes. Becky will also highlight examples of joint working between road safety and public health teams as a result of the joint strategic needs assessment.
