Multiple Needs Policy & Practice Updates – from MEAM

WY-FI is supported by the Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) coalition.

MEAM produces a monthly newsletter called ‘Multiple Disadvantage Matters’, to keep local areas up to date with key developments in policy affecting people with multiple needs.

It aims to do this by:

  • Highlighting national policy changes and how local areas can influence these, both individually and via MEAM.
  • Reflecting the local influencing work of partnerships and the impact this is having on effective coordination of services and systems change.

There are also COVID-19 resources and learning opportunities from around the sector.

We’ve created this page in collaboration with MEAM, to give you direct access to the latest edition of the newsletter, as well as to be able to subscribe to future editions.
