What makes a difference – new briefing published

By |2019-07-02T13:13:21+00:00July 2nd, 2019|Categories: News, Project Evaluation|Tags: , , , , |

The third paper in our series of briefings on multiple needs has been published today. The series draws upon data collected by Fulfilling Lives partnerships on the beneficiaries they have supported.

We know that too often people with multiple needs are denied the support they need, labelled as too high risk to work with or seen as making ‘life-style choices’ to be homeless or self-medicate trauma with substances. The Fulfilling Lives programme shows it is possible to engage and support people with the most complex needs; those who mainstream services may exclude or refuse to help due to perceived high levels of risk and challenging behaviour.

Briefing 3 explores what makes a difference when working with this group of people, and how progress differs amongst the group.

Understanding multiple needs – second in our series of briefings out now

Today we publish the second in our series of briefings on multiple needs, drawing on data collected by Fulfilling Lives partnerships on their beneficiaries.

People with multiple are diverse and should not be seen as a uniform group. It is important that those designing services for people with multiple needs recognise this and take steps to understand their potential service users in depth. This briefing helps unpack what is meant by ‘multiple needs’ and explores the characteristics of those affected.

Why we need to invest in multiple needs – new briefing out now

By |2019-06-05T10:15:33+00:00May 2nd, 2019|Categories: News, Project Evaluation|Tags: , , , , , |

This is the first in a series of briefings on multiple needs, drawing on data collected by Fulfilling Lives partnerships on their beneficiaries. In this briefing we explore the substantial cost to the public purse created by misdirected and avoidable use of public services, as well as the human, social and economic costs.

The briefing also looks at how, after getting support from Fulfilling Lives for nearly a year, people have fewer negative interactions with public services, including fewer arrests, convictions, evictions and visits to A&E.

Latest Report from the Fulfilling Lives National Evaluation Published

By |2019-05-14T10:40:06+00:00April 26th, 2018|Categories: News, Project Evaluation|Tags: , , , , , , |

The latest national evaluation report on the Fulfilling Lives (Supporting People with Multiple Needs) programme, published today by CFE, shows continuing high demand for help. The 12 funded projects have successfully engaged with nearly 3,000 people affected by homelessness, substance misuse, offending and mental ill health.

Beneficiaries who remain with the programme show clear signs of progress, but this takes time and substantial resource. Project staff often need to spend extended periods of time with beneficiaries and have to be flexible to cope with chaotic lives. However some beneficiaries have needs for which they will always require support. What constitutes success varies from person to person and in many cases, success is about developing strategies, resilience and understanding to effectively manage their needs.

The report includes clear […]
