Fulfilling Lives aims to improve the support available for people who experience multiple disadvantage, so that individuals are better able to manage their lives.
Multiple disadvantage is defined in this programme as people who experience two or more of homelessness, a record of current or historical offending, substance misuse, and mental ill health.
