Northamptonshire Hidden Needs

Welcome to the first Northamptonshire Hidden Needs Report commissioned by Northamptonshire Community Foundation. The research was conducted by Professor Richard Hazenberg and PhD Researcher, Claire Paterson-Young at the University of Northampton, Institute for Social Innovation and Impact.

Northamptonshire Hidden Needs explores the priority needs within our local communities. The report highlights key areas of deprivation and inequality that are of great concern and need tackling within Northamptonshire urgently.
