We want to radically change the health, social care and criminal justice culture in Newcastle and Gateshead so that people with complex needs can make it from crisis to stability. Concentrating on outcomes for people rather than organisations, services will be better joined up, less risk averse, and see peoples’ assets rather than their problems.

Our mission is to work with those people in Newcastle Gateshead who experience a number of difficulties across alcohol and drug dependency, mental health, accommodation or offending, and who are not benefiting from the current service provision. Our aim is to develop and support new ways of working by challenging both the system and stereotypes so that people can improve their overall physical and mental health, find safe accommodation and have the opportunity for paid work: so that they can lead Fulfilling Lives.



Our goal is to improve and better coordinate services to support people across Newcastle and Gateshead living with multiple and complex needs - to see people for the potential they have, rather than for their problems.
