Supporting Changing Futures areas

May 26, 2023

The Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) coalition has been commissioned to provide learning and support services for the 15 local partnerships that form part of the Government and The National Lottery Community Fund’s (TNLCF) Changing Futures Programme.

Changing Futures is a £73m investment designed to improve services and systems for people facing multiple disadvantage and has been running since 2021. MEAM has been commissioned to provide support for the period 2023-2025.

Oliver Hilbery, Director of MEAM, commented:

“MEAM is delighted to have been awarded the learning and support contract for the Changing Futures programme.

“At MEAM, we have a long history of providing support to local partnerships across the country that are transforming services, systems and policy for people experiencing multiple disadvantage. This includes the national MEAM Approach network and TNLCF’s Fulfilling Lives programme.

“Our bespoke support to the Changing Futures areas will be co-developed with them to support their needs and sit alongside our wider network activities, enabling the local areas to learn from and support each other and to develop learning and evidence that can inform future policy on multiple disadvantage.

“We’re excited to begin work on the contract and look forward to helping Changing Futures areas achieve their ambitions between now and the end of the programme.”

Jennie Thompson, Head of Changing Futures at TNLCF, commented:

“We’re delighted to be working with MEAM as part of our collaboration with DLUHC to support the delivery of Changing Futures. As previous support partners for the Fulfilling Lives programme and through the current MEAM approach network we welcome the expertise, knowledge and learning that the MEAM team will provide to the Changing Futures areas.”

MEAM is currently recruiting for three roles to support contract delivery. Visit our jobs page to find out more.
