The most vulnerable people across England will receive co-ordinated support to help rebuild their lives, the Government has announced.

Through its Changing Futures programme, 15 local areas will receive almost £55m over the next three years to support people facing multiple disadvantage. This could include homelessness, substance misuse, domestic abuse, contact with the criminal justice system, and mental health issues.

Minister for rough sleeping and housing, Eddie Hughes, said: 'Our ground-breaking programme with the National Lottery Community Fund will help the most vulnerable in our society, giving them the tools they need to turn their lives around.

'By providing specialist, joined up support we can create long-lasting change, helping these people reach their full potential and build a brighter future.'

The programme will transform how services operate by linking up support across areas such as health, employment, and drug misuse. Local areas will also take a ‘person-centred’ and ‘trauma-informed’ approach to tailor support to individuals and their needs.

Blondel Cluff, chair of The National Lottery Community Fund, added: 'We are delighted to align and collaborate with Government on this important, shared objective through this new jointly-funded programme, that will support some of the most vulnerable members of our society to use their voices to help design and deliver the services they need, so that they and their communities can thrive together.'
