Fulfilling Lives in Islington and Camden

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.

The Community of Practise (CoP) provides peer support and shared learning for therapeutic and psychological practitioners in the Fulfilling Lives areas, while also supporting system change by helping to make the case for therapeutic interventions for people with experience of multiple disadvantage.

A partnership between FLIC, Fulfilling Lives South East, Opportunity Nottingham & MEAM, the CoP has also brought together the evaluation leads from the three Fulfilling Lives areas to start developing an evaluation model for psychological therapies.

To lend weight to its evaluative and influencing work, the CoP is working with experts including Dr David Murphy, Lecturer in Trauma Studies at the Centre for Trauma, Resilience and Growth at the University of Nottingham.
