CFE Research and the University of Sheffield, the national evaluators of the Fulfilling Lives Programme – Supporting People with Multiple Needs, have published their yearly report for 2016 which evaluates the support delivered and the impact of the 12 Fulfilling Lives projects across England.
Key findings include:
- Beneficiaries’ Outcome Star scores are showing clear improvement following support from the Fulfilling Lives programme
- Not having a restricted timeframe gives the time needed to build trust….which in turn is essential for encouraging engagement
- Staff with lived experience of multiple needs often form relationships with beneficiaries more quickly and model the possibility of success.

WY-FI’s vision is that by 2020 adults with complex needs in West Yorkshire should have the opportunity of a settled home, positive health and wellbeing, access to education and employment and trust in a positive future.
Our approach is based on 3 key elements:
- Leadership and Governance – how we direct, reflect and inform what the WY-FI Project does
- Evidence – what we do/learn
- Influence – how we use what we learn to influence partners and others providing services to people with multiple needs
Our approach to the achievement of the vision underpins the WY-FI Theory of Change to support the realisation of improved individual outcomes through a changed system which ensures people with complex needs receive effective support from accessible and coordinated services.
