In Islington and Camden we have brought together a partnership of key agencies from the statutory and voluntary sectors, each of them committed to greater collaboration in order to improve provision for people with multiple needs. These strategic partners provide ongoing support and governance to the delivery of the project.

SHP is the leading organisation for the Fulfilling Lives Islington and Camden project. We have three project delivery partners - CRI, St Mungo’s-Broadway and Providence Row HA - who have seconded their specialist staff to SHP to make up the team of link workers. Our other strategic partners, who provide ongoing support and governance to the project, include the London Borough of Camden, the London Borough of Islington, Solace Women's Aid, Holy Cross Centre Trust, Eagle Recovery, PACT, Pillion Trust, and London Probation Trust.

The project is supported and governed by our Strategic Partnership Group and our Peer Development Board.

Strategic Partnership Group (SPG): The SPG is a group of organisations, agencies and public bodies from across Islington and Camden with a common interest in the aims of the project. Its members take collective responsibility for the governance and overall direction of the project. Individually, they have also committed to promote and implement the learning from the project within their own services and amongst the wider service delivery environment.

Peer Development Board (PDB): The Peer Development Board is made up of people who have lived experience of using services in the areas of homelessness, substance and/or alcohol use, mental ill health and offending. Its role is to ensure that people with first hand experience of living with complex needs have a decisive voice in the development of FLIC.  The PDB has a formal role in the governance of the project and two of its representatives sit on the Strategic Partnership Group. The PDB oversees all peer activity, provides a voice for Peer Mentors, and advises the operations group on delivery issues. The PDB also acts as a point of contact for other service user groups within the two Boroughs and nationally where appropriate.
