People facing multiple disadvantage experience a combination of problems including homelessness, substance misuse, contact with the criminal justice system and mental ill health. They fall through the gaps between services and systems, making it harder for them to address their problems and lead fulfilling lives.
Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) is a coalition of national charities – Clinks, Homeless Link, Mind and associate member Collective Voice. Together MEAM represents over 1,300 frontline organisations across England.
Working together we support local areas across the country to develop effective, coordinated services that directly improve the lives of people facing multiple disadvantage.
We use our shared knowledge and practical experience from this work to influence policy at the national and local level.
