Lottery funding of £112m to improve delivery of services

The Big Lottery Fund is awarding £112m of funding to end ‘the revolving door of care’ faced by people with complex needs.

The grants of up to £10m will create more coordinated services to improve the help improve the care given to those with multiple problems such as mental ill health, addiction and homelessness.

Nat Sloane, chair of Big Lottery Fund England, said: ‘We’ve worked with a range of charities who tell us that currently the system is flawed - people are passed from pillar to post and the result is them rebounding in and out of A&E departments and criminal courts rather than being helped in an effective way by integrated support services.

‘This £112m investment will end the revolving door of care for these vulnerable people and rather than being drains on society will allow them to become assets that benefit their communities and society as a whole.’

Over the eight-year investment, the partnerships will be tracked to learn more effective ways of delivering services for people with multiple needs.
