Have you ever completed a report or evaluation and thought ‘what will happen to all this work when my project ends’?
A key piece of

support non-specialist client-facing workers to more safely hold high levels of risk.
As Fulfilling Lives South East welcomes the government’s long-awaited Domestic Abuse Plan, we reflect on how far the measures go in meeting the needs of women with multiple and complex needs.
Can we say we really believe in people if we only believe in them up to a certain point?
At Fulfilling Lives, we aimed to co-produce from day one of the project being in operation. As well as a systems change project, we are an experimental one. We have learned about co-production along the way and evolved our practices accordingly to fit our purposes.
Ideas about who uses to drug & alcohol services and how they use them need to be challenged. In Hastings, the CGL Women’s Hub has been quietly doing this.

Productive partnership nurturing positive system change.
