Fulfilling Lives in Islington & Camden (FLIC) is an eight-year Lottery funded learning programme closing in May 2022, designed to support people experiencing multiple disadvantage and affect system change to improve the experience and outcomes for people accessing services.
Too often the voices of people experiencing multiple disadvantage aren't heard. Putting clients at the centre of everything we do is key to our work. Our support service is intensive, trauma-informed and led by the experiences and insights of our clients.
We work in partnership with statutory and voluntary agencies across both boroughs to improve services for people with multiple needs and drive systemic change, influencing how services are designed and delivered.
We're committed to sharing the learning from our programme, in order to support commissioners and practitioners alike to improve the way services for people facing multiple disadvantage are designed and delivered.
Accessing housing and sustaining tenancies remains a major challenge for people facing multiple disadvantage. To tackle this we’re using the Housing First approach, an evidence-based model which is proven to benefit clients with multiple needs.

Setting up and Managing Your Tenancy is a comprehensive guide for clients and practitioners, giving information and advice about every step of accessing independent accommodation, including the documentation needed by landlords, how to manage bills and what to do in emergencies.
Peer mentors are volunteers with first-hand experience of substance use, mental ill-health, complex needs and homelessness, who are stable in their recovery, and want to support others to make positive changes in their lives.
