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.

"How has my life changed since moving into my flat? I'd say immensely, intensely and amazingly" - Terry. 

To celebrate our final Multiple Disadvantage Day as a project, we co-produced this year’s campaign with our clients. Seven months in the making, we’re proud to present a short film which was directed by the experiences, and wants and wishes of our clients. 

This year’s film looks at the importance of home and reiterates that home is not just housing. Consider how important your home has been to you in the last year, a sense of home is vital to us all. 

Without further ado, we’d like to present our latest film featuring stories from Cashe, Lawrence, Sophie and Terry. We’d also like to thank the many other clients that we worked alongside and helped shape this piece of work, from attending workshops, sharing experiences and offering feedback.  

We hope you enjoy!
