Sinking and Swimming – Understanding Britain’s Unmet Needs

report by the Young Foundation

The Young Foundation's latest report 'Sinking and Swimming: understanding Britain's unmet needs' explores how psychological and material needs are being met and unmet in Britain. Based on new analysis of statistical data, case studies, surveys and hundreds of conversations with people across the country, the study shows where the most acute needs are and how they interrelate. It looks at why some people can cope with shocks and setbacks and others can't. And it draws out the implications for policy, philantropy and public action.
