BIG’s wider policies and funding arrangements rely on information about the state of need in the UK. We develop targeted programmes that set out to deal with specific needs that we have identified, but also ‘open, responsive’ programmes where groups explain a specific need and what they plan to do about it.
Dealing with complex needs
As Sinking and Swimming noted, needs often exist in combination, so are best dealt with in a more co-ordinated way.
Preventing need from arising in the first place may ultimately be more cost-effective than dealing with the consequences later.
