Blackpool Fulfilling Lives

For this service all our work is outreach/community based.

The Community Lottery funding will end on 31 March 2021 and the BFL project will close.

Our team will end their direct work with clients in December 2020 and we are no longer able to accept referrals.

As part of the close down of the service BFL are running a learning event where we will share the evidence and learning from the 7 year project which is open to everyone. The first session will take place on 1st October 2020 at 10.30am and the same session is repeated every 4 weeks at the same time.

For more information on how to attend a session please contact us.

The Big Lottery fund invested up to £112 million as part of their Fulfilling Lives programme to help people with multiple complex needs. In early 2014 Blackpool was awarded with £10 million to set up the Fulfilling Lives service in the town to help people who were experiencing homelessness, reoffending, problematic substance misuse and mental ill health. A new major partnership initiative, with We Are With You as the lead organisation, was also set up helping to bring together a wide range of voluntary sector and statutory organisations from across Blackpool to help develop and change the way services interact and provide support to people who were living chaotic lifestyles. Our teams engage people with multiple needs and help them to access services and recognise the challenging and difficult experiences they face, working with people on an individual basis, tailoring our support to the needs of each person. We do not provide treatment but help provide a link between services and the client to ensure they are supported. Once people are stabilised, we help them to realise their goals and aspirations, whether it is reconnecting with their family, developing new skills and interests or taking up educational, volunteering or paid employment opportunities The vision is that by the end of this project people with multiple needs will: be healthier and happier; receive better coordinated support and have access to effective recovery support and improved reintegration back in to the community.
