What we do

The National Fulfilling Lives programme funds local Fulfilling Lives partnerships of voluntary and statutory agencies in twelve areas across England to test new ways of ensuring individuals receive joined up and person-centred services which work with them.

Fulfilling Lives Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham has three main areas of work.

Service delivery: we work alongside people to test and learn different interventions to make transformative change and improvement to their lives 

Co-production: we aim to embed a co-production culture to ensure those with lived experience are at the heart of service design and delivery. 

System change: we provide learning and evidence that will be used to influence on a local and national level, creating sustainable, long-term systemic change for people facing multiple disadvantage. 

The National Fulfilling Lives Programme is evaluated by the University of Sheffield and CFE Research to evaluate the impact of the programme and provide a package of learning support.


 Our governance

Fulfilling Lives Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and overseen by a Core Strategic Group (CSG), who have responsibility for overseeing the governance and strategic direction and delivery of the programme.  The CSG is formed of members from Certitude, Thames Reach, SLAM, Lambeth, Lewisham Southwark and CCG. Relationships Partners from TNLCF and MEAM (Making Every Adult Matter) also attend the meetings. Our governance also includes the voluntary sector, local authorities, health providers, and people with lived experience of facing multiple disadvantage to develop, implement and have oversight of the Fulfilling Lives Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham programme.

 Our ambassadors

We are delighted that Charlotte and Christina have been successfully appointed as volunteer ambassadors for our programme. They are members of the National Expert Citizens’ Group, the national board of the 12 Fulfilling Lives regions, providing vital insight into multiple disadvantage.  The ultimate aim of the group is to improve the lives of service users facing multiple disadvantage, and to influence systems change with services across homelessness, substance use, mental health, and offending.  This should be achieved through effective co-production with the service user at its heart.
