In November 2019, Fulfilling Lives South East published a new report, Manifesto for Change: Changing systems for people facing multiple disadvantage. It outlines the 6 key themes that have arisen from their work so far, and sets out their commitments under each theme going forward.
The Fulfilling Lives South East Project started in 2014 and is funded until July 2022 by the National Lottery Community Fund. It is led by Brighton Housing Trust (BHT), with the support of delivery partners Equinox and Oasis Project, and is one of twelve inter-linked projects running across England.
The Fulfilling Lives programme provides intensive and tailored support to people with multiple and complex needs, helping the most vulnerable and hard to reach. It also works alongside people with lived experience of multiple disadvantage, to make services better connected and easier to access.
The six themes explored in the manifesto are:
- Health Inequalities
- Domestic abuse and complex needs
- Criminal Justice System – repeat offending
- Treatment pathways for coexisting conditions
- Unsupported Temporary Accommodation
- Repeat removals of children into the care system
