Blackpool Fulfilling Lives
Helping people with multiple disadvantage to lead more fulfilled and productive lives.
Blackpool is one of 12 areas in England receiving Big Lottery funding to support people with multiple disadvantage as part of the national Fulfilling Lives Programme. Our aim is to present and evidence more effective ways of delivering vital services to people with Multiple Disadvantage.
We help people living in Blackpool who have a combination of issues including homelessness, re-offending, problematic substance misuse, and mental ill health. Many of the Navigators that comprise our staff teams have a background of lived experience that provides understanding, empathy and insight.
