This week, the Government has announced that it will be committing £46m to improving support for people experiencing multiple and complex needs, including homelessness, substance misuse and reoffending.
The announcement comes as part of the 2020 Budget, with money coming from the Shared Outcomes Fund, an initiative to promote cross-departmental programmes.
Fulfilling Lives, MEAM and Lankelly Chase were all invited by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to contribute to the business case that led to the announcement.
The work of the National Experts Citizen Group (NECG) was also included.
Laura Furness, Head of Funding at the National Lottery Community Fund says “this is a hugely positive step for the Fulfilling Lives programme, and is a great legacy for all that we’ve been working so hard on”.
