Proving Need

How can you prove that there is a need for your activity?


In funding applications, voluntary and community organisations are often weak at demonstrating the need for their activity. Relevant local statistics could help to prove the case.

Here are some useful sources of information:

East Sussex in Figures

Department of Health profile for Hastings


Government statistics for all local areas
