Supporting those experiencing multiple disadvantage: What makes a difference? Insight from the Fulfilling Lives programme

About this Event

Fulfilling Lives is a National Lottery Community Fund programme worth £112 million over 8 years. The programme aims to better support people experiencing multiple disadvantage, including homelessness, substance misuse, reoffending and mental ill-health. Voluntary sector-led partnerships in 12 areas of England are helping people to access more joined-up services tailored to their needs. The programme aims to change lives, change systems and involve beneficiaries.

The University of Sheffield is working in partnership with CFE Research to evaluate the programme. The evaluation team will be sharing their latest findings – why does multiple disadvantage matter, what are the costs, who is affected and what makes a difference when supporting this group. The webinar will also feature insights and learning from two of the funded partnerships.

Intended audience: The webinar is open to anyone but will be of particular interest to commissioners of services that affect or are used by people experiencing multiple disadvantage, policy-makers and other decision makers, as well as managers, practitioners and volunteers in organisations working to support people experiencing multiple disadvantage.

The webinar aims to:

• Share insight from the national evaluation of Fulfilling Lives, focusing in particular on what makes a difference in supporting those who experience multiple disadvantage

• Enhance our understanding of people experiencing multiple disadvantage, including the services they use, their needs and profile

• Explore the role of navigators in supporting those experiencing multiple disadvantage

• Explore how to engage women experiencing multiple disadvantage and identify beneficial ways of working to support them.

Speakers:

Rachel Moreton, Associate Director at CFE Research

Ian Treasure, Programme Manager, Fulfilling Lives Blackpool

Rae Clarke, Services Coordinator, Fulfilling Lives Islington and Camden
