The whole working age population some 237,250 people.

It has been acknowledged that the science behind the numbers is not as precise as everyone would want. This is particularly significant at

Tiers 3, 4 and 5.

In Kirklees the overall adult population is predicted to rise by 3%. It has to be the case that numbers alone will not best inform what needs are.

Community resilience is problematic together with some key areas of provision. In using a

range of approaches to assess need, we can capture themes expressed by people who

experience services. In the national MIND survey of 2004 the issues below were seen as a

major or contributory cause of isolation and mental distress.

Issue Mentioned by

Discrimination 58% of people

Isolation 79%

Lack of confidence 78%

A lack of close relationships 74%

A lack of work 54%

Lack of money 59%

Lack of transport 42%

Lack of information 43%

Lack of support 57%
