Deprivation and community need in Suffolk

This project sought to assemble a coherent evidence place on where deprivation is experienced in Suffolk, how it is concentrated and where it may be hard to identify. It built on an assumption that deprivation can be material, physical or social and may be obscured by being concentrated in certain places or among certain groups of population. It may also arise from a combination of personal and place characteristics.

The project seeks to uncover the ‘hidden’ needs in Suffolk and some understanding of the nature and extent of it as well as how well statutory or voluntary provision is currently addressing the issues. Identifying such ‘hidden’ needs involves working with small area data from a range of sources, but also recognising that needs can be complex and are not always easily quantifiable or picked up in official statistics and categories. The aim of the project is to help Suffolk Foundation to inform their grant making activities.
