Combating Homelessness, Creating Opportunities, Promoting Change

Focus and Outcomes

Our focus is on people with complex needs who are experiencing at least two of the following:

  • homelessness
  • reoffending
  • problematic substance misuse
  • mental ill health.

These may be complicated by a range of other issues.

The Big Lottery Fund want organisations to work in partnership to develop locally owned solutions that bring about the following outcomes:

For the individual

People with multiple and complex needs are able to better manage their lives through access to person centred and coordinated services.

For services

Services are more tailored and better connected and will empower users to take full part in effective service design and delivery.


Shared learning and the improved measurement of outcomes for people with multiple and complex needs will demonstrate the impact of service models to key stakeholders.

A strong action learning element will feature, to demonstrate the impact of this approach and influence practice and ‘system’ design.fulfilling-lives-banner_W700
