Fulfilling Lives in Islington and Camden

Fulfilling Lives in Islington & Camden (FLIC) has now closed its doors. However, all of our news, learnings and reports can be found here, and our clients' voices and films can be found here.

FLIC was an eight-year Lottery funded learning programme, 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 was key to our work. Our support service was intensive, trauma-informed and led by the experiences and insights of our clients.

We worked 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.

If you have any questions, please email Lucy Campbell ([email protected]), SHP's head of Multiple Disadvantage Transformation.

The pandemic has impacted us all, however, those experiencing multiple disadvantage have been particularly at risk. For this year's Multiple Disadvantage Day, we explore how those experiencing multiple disadvantage have been impacted by the pandemic, how they've coped and the practices and values we hope remain as we move out of #COVID19.

Multiple Disadvantage Day is an annual awareness day that wants to challenge the stigma associated with those people experiencing homelessness, addiction, poor mental health and substance misuse face in their lives. By definition, people experiencing multiple disadvantage face two or more of these issues. Read more here.
