About this event

Join us for a discussion exploring the models of support for people facing multiple disadvantage. Multiple disadvantage describes a complex combination of needs faced by an individual, which may include homelessness, substance use, contact with the criminal justice system and mental ill-health. Many charity and statutory services—from foodbanks to GP practices—will have people facing these challenges among those you serve or support. This event will help an organisations’ leaders and teams to understand some of the key issues affecting the experiences of people facing multiple disadvantage: access to services, transitions within services, and the importance of trauma, gender and culturally-informed care.

This event is part of our research and evaluation partnership for Fulfilling Lives Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, a programme supporting system change for people facing multiple disadvantage across three London boroughs. We will be joined by a Fulfilling Lives LSL Ambassador who is also a member of the Fulfilling Lives National Expert Citizens Group, who will share their own perspectives on the system, and our research partners at Sheffield Hallam University, who will share the findings of their recent literature review on models of support for people facing multiple disadvantage.
