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.

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.
