Cambridge Centre for Housing & Planning Research


The project sought to uncover the ‘hidden’ needs in Suffolk and some understanding of the nature and extent of those needs, as well as how well statutory or voluntary provision was 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 was to help Suffolk Foundation to inform their grant making activities.
