WY-FI Project

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence | Supporting people with multiple needs

Workforce Development

The aim of the Workforce Development Team was to embed relational and asset based ways of working through workforce development and co-production activities. Between 2014 and 2021, we:

  • Provided Multiple Needs “suite” of training to front-line staff 
  • Facilitated Multi-Agency Practice Development Groups in West Yorkshire localities and handed these over to these localities for them to continue post-WY-FI.
  • Delivered Level 2 Accredited Peer Mentor training.
  • Produced the peer-developed MNingful Life training resource

Useful Resources

Multiple Needs Core Competency Framework

The framework underpins the successful and proven “Navigator Model”, which we’ve developed and tested during our six years of operation as part of the National Lottery Community Fund’s Fulfilling Lives Programme.

The framework is designed to be adopted by organisations who work with people experiencing multiple needs as a result of complex trauma.

A Guide to Independent Reflective Practice

In response to COVID-19 restrictions, we’ve developed this step by step guide to support people to continue reflecting on their professional practices whilst working remotely.

MNingful Life

MNingful Life has been designed to provide opportunities for learners to explore the issues and barriers faced by people experiencing multiple needs. It was originally developed for our Peer Mentor training programme and was co-produced by people with lived experience of multiple disadvantage.
