Update – 22nd April 2013
There are currently 63 organisations in this group - all of the
organisations that have expressed a wish to be included.
To meet the priorities of the Partnership Group and the criteria of the BIG Lottery, the four key areas of focus:
2. Ensuring that statutory and voluntary services become more flexible in their responses for people with multiple needs: e.g. longer opening hours/assertive outreach/speedier appointments/changes to service delivery; and ensuring that this is sustainable in the long-term through concrete changes to commissioning structures and contracts.
3. Ensuring that people facing multiple needs are involved in service planning and delivery:including employing a team of paid Service User Consultants, having Service User Leads on the project’s Steering Groups, establishing service user panels in each area, involving service users in strategic planning and embedding peer support models in services.
4. Encouraging and disseminating learning:
To share the learning we will gain through delivering the programme. To share this locally, regionally and nationally. To facilitate and attend good practice events and to understand what has worked well elsewhere and to share our own findings (of what has not worked well, and why, as well as our successes).
this work. This work will hopefully inform commissioning and policy
Also in each locality:
This figure breaks down to £10,000 per year in each of the three locations over eight years to enable a Rapid Response Interventions Fund.
This fund will be used to provide emergency support where this is necessary to ensure a client’s safety and well-being. This will be used, for example, to purchase emergency accommodation (eg. temporary B&B) clothing, bedding, food, travel, emergency accommodation, incentives to engagement, communication costs (interpreters etc). The fund will be used to meet clients’ basic needs to support initial engagement / overcome practical barriers that have traditionally impeded engagement. There is no statutory provision to provide such direct, quickly accessible and personalised financial responses to meet clients’ immediate needs.
This breaks down to £5,000 in each location over eight years.
This fund will enable project co-ordinators/key workers to access a small pot of money (up to £500 per client) for any costs that cannot be met elsewhere for items that support the clients’ longer term journey recovery, such as resettlement costs, rent/deposit in advance, relocation costs, furniture & bedding, cooking equipment for new accommodation, travel to appointments etc.
£60,000 each year in each location to implement new activities into existing projects and services as highlighted in service user consultations and consultation with the Partnership Group. Eg, to fund sports and activities to encourage diversion from substance and alcohol misuse, encourage and enable the building of support networks and friendships, developing interests, enabling clients to “do what I used to like doing”. Need for this type of activity / intervention was consistent theme in consultations, to encourage and enable engagement with especially hard to reach clients; the ability to engage with clients in different settings, under different circumstances, and in creative and new ways
– informal and more equal settings.
