West Yorkshire – Finding Independence | Supporting people with multiple needs

Fulfilling Lives Programme


WY-FI (West Yorkshire – Finding Independence) is one of 12 Fulfilling Lives Partners who are funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. But what does that actually mean?

More about the Fulfilling Lives Programme…

The Fulfilling Lives programme is a National Lottery Community Fund, £112 million investment over 8 years supporting people who are experiencing multiple and complex needs. The programme funds local partnerships in 12 areas across England to test new ways of ensuring individuals receive joined up and person centred services which work for them.

Between 2014 and 2022, each of the 12 Fulfilling Lives partnerships will design, test and deliver tailored programmes of support which respond to the local context, environment and needs of people with multiple and complex needs. Each partnership has created a local systems change plan with a series of priorities for the remainder of the programme.

You can read more about these system change plans in the booklet Fulfilling Lives: Changing systems for people facing multiple disadvantage.

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence is one of these Fulfilling Lives partners. Each partnership has different system change priorities but are working towards the same three outcomes:

  1. People with multiple needs manage their lives better through access to person centred and co-ordinated services.
  2. Services are tailored and better connected, with service users to fully take part in effective service design and delivery.
  3. Shared learning and the improved measurement of outcomes will demonstrate the impact of service models to key stakeholders and influence future programme design by local services.
