Fulfilling Lives in Islington and Camden

The Coronavirus poses particular risk to our clients who are already vulnerable and disadvantaged. During these unprecedented times we're working hard to continue to support our clients and protect their safety. If you are concerned about the welfare of any of our clients, or would like to speak to the team, please email [email protected] 

Fulfilling Lives in Islington and Camden (FLIC) supports people facing multiple disadvantage relating to drug and alcohol use, homelessness, offending and mental ill health, to build more positive and fulfilling futures.

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.

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. Since 2014 we have worked with three project delivery partners - CGLSt Mungo’s- and Providence Row HA - who 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 IslingtonSolace Women's Aid, CGL, Camden & Islington NHS Trust (CANDI), Public Health and the London Probation Trust.

The project is supported and governed by our Strategic Partnership Group and the peer-led FLIC Advisory Board.

Strategic Partnership Group (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.

FLIC Advisory Board (‘FAB’) 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.  FAB has a formal role in the governance of the project and two of its representatives sit on the Strategic Partnership Group. FAB is also a member the National Expert Citizen’s Group which brings together Experts by Experience across the Fulfilling Lives programme.
