E253 - The Household Support Fund with Paul Wickers
“We should teach kids how to solve problems rather than just teaching them the right answers.” – Paul Wickers
We spoke with Paul Wickers, CEO at Huggg, to talk about their innovative tech-platform which is enabling targeted assistance to be provided those who need it most. As the economic fallout of the last few years continues, Paul and his team are working with agencies and organisations who are best placed to provide support to those across the UK who need it most.
1. The importance of dignity
Unfortunately, people across the UK, continue to be struggling both economically and socially by macro factors that are far out of their control. The way Huggg has developed the support which people get, ensures that individuals can access funds with dignity and still leave them with a level of autonomy that enables them to provide for themselves and those around them in the way that is right for them.
2. Improvements through technology
By improving both the speed in which support can be accessed, as well as ensuring that those delivering services have a real-time reflection of how funds have been allocated, Huggg’s platform allows service providers to increase the number of individuals they can process and support every single day.
3. Never stop solving problems
The way Paul and his team work clearly shows that there is a continuing need for all of us to think more about how we can think about problem-solving in our own jobs but also empower our teams to be able to do the same.
