National Multiple Needs Summit


Join a growing, vibrant network of people taking action for society’s most vulnerable.

People facing multiple needs experience homelessness, substance misuse, mental health problems and contact with the criminal justice system. The coordinated support they need is rarely provided by services, which are often designed to deal with one problem at a time.

Across the country a growing network of people are working together to change this situation. Individuals with lived experience, service providers, commissioners and policy makers are collaborating across sectors to find new ways to support an estimated 60,000 people with complex needs.

Join this vibrant network on 22 April 2015 as it gathers in London for the National Multiple Needs Summit.

This isn’t a standard conference. The workshop programme will be led and shaped by delegates and cover issues such as:

  • New models of service delivery
  • Good practice in service user involvement
  • Changing systems; and
  • Working with unusual partners.

Over an extended lunch there will be a chance for delegates to discuss the issues most important to them and to learn and share with peers, during an Open Space style session.

We are inviting registered delegates who would like to run a workshop to propose one using an online form. The workshop programme will then be agreed and will be available online in early March.
