Blackpool Fulfilling Lives

We do not provide services to clients in our office. For this service all our work is outreach/community based.

The Big Lottery fund has 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 are experiencing homelessness, reoffending, problematic substance misuse and mental ill health. A new major partnership initiative, with Addaction 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 are 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.

12 new volunteers have been recruited and are going through a 12 week induction programme, shadowing workers and taking an active part in our work with beneficiaries.
