VCS orgs to lead pioneering partnerships targeting multiple needs

15 October 2012

There are an estimated 60,000 adults in England with multiple needs who are beset by several problems at once and lack effective contact with services that support across all their needs. The 15 VCS lead partners will lead partnerships to apply for a share of the Big Lottery Fund's £100m investment over eight years to improve the lives of people with multiple and complex needs including homelessness, reoffending, substance misuse and mental ill-health. 

Each of the 15 areas have a significant concentration of people with multiple and complex needs and organisations were invited by the Fund to work together to select a lead partner and to closely collaborate to improve services for people who experience at least two of the problems listed above. 

These 15 lead partners now have the task of developing a vision for how they will deliver local services that are more tailored, better connected and involve people with entrenched problems playing a key role in developing and delivering the support. The BIG Lottery Fund will award between £4 million and £10 million for between five to eight years to successful applications from these partnerships.

The lead partners for the North West are:

Blackpool - Addaction
Liverpool - Plus Dane Group
Manchester - Young People's Support Foundation
