Multiple & Complex Needs network

As our ICS develops, it has become apparent there is the need for a space for organisations that support people with multiple and complex needs to come together to discuss the many health and wellbeing issues that face them and the people they support. Changing Lives is forming a new network of like-minded organisations, supported by the VCSE Partnership Programme.

We are defining multiple and complex needs in this context as people experiencing two or more of the following: homelessness, addiction, involvement in the criminal justice system, exploitation, domestic abuse, poor mental health.

The network held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday 15 June and will meet again in a months’ time. The next meeting is on: Wednesday 13 July, 1-2:30pm.
