Fulfilling Lives: Supporting People with Complex Needs was an eight-year (2014-2022) programme, funded by a £112 million investment from The National Lottery Community Fund. Fulfilling Lives partnerships ran in 12 locations across the country.
Working with people who have first-hand experience of substance misuse, homelessness, offending, and mental ill health, the Fulfilling Lives partnerships aimed to make services and support better connected, easier to access and tailored to the needs of individuals. By working with the partnerships, these experts by experience co-produced services so that support works for others facing similar challenges.
#seethefullpicture was a series of campaigns run by the Fulfilling Lives programme to raise awareness of the challenges people experiencing a combination of homelessness, substance misuse, poor mental health and other complex needs face in their lives. Multiple campaigns ran each year, including Multiple Disadvantage Day which was on the first Wednesday in July each year.
