Fulfilling Lives Islington and Camden: A Realist Review of Programme Theory

Michelle Cornes, Martin Whiteford, Jill Manthorpe

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Underpinning the Big Lottery Fund’s Fulfilling Lives investment is the core programme hypothesis that addressing multiple needs depends on bringing different organisations together to offer people one ‘coordinated’ support service.1 The mechanisms designed to deliver improved coordination will vary across the 12 lottery funded sites, and the aim is that over the life-time of the programme a number of different approaches will be evidenced and showcased.

The Fulfilling Lives Partnership for Islington and Camden (FLIC), which is the subject of this report, is designed to nurture a far reaching programme of local improvement activity. It brings together a high level ‘Strategic Partnership Group’ (SPG), comprising representatives from the voluntary sector, local authority, health providers, criminal justice and peer-led groups. SPG members will be expected to champion new approaches to commissioning and engage in processes of service redesign. Learning about what works when it comes to enabling people with multiple and complex needs to move on and lead more fulfilling lives will be generated though a number of demonstration pilots and also the experiences of a new ‘link worker’ team which has been set-up to model ‘best practice’.
