Working together to address Suffolk’s Hidden Needs
The crucial ingredient in moving towards a better Suffolk for all is to have clear evidence for everyone of what our challenges are.
Our latest Hidden Needs 3 report, produced by the University of Suffolk, uses data from a variety of national sources, including the Index of Multiple Deprivation, to explore the nature of deprivation across the county.

Following the launch of our latest Hidden Needs 3 report at our Annual Review, we held two further sessions to review and present the findings in more detail. Hosted by SCF’s Michael Attwood, and presented by the two authors of the report: Noel Smith, Social Research and Consultancy and Cristian Dogaru, Associate Professor at University of Suffolk, the sessions provided a more in depth look at the Hidden Needs report, as well as an opportunity for a 30 minute Q&A.
