Goodbye from Fulfilling Lives Newcastle Gateshead

Our programme closes on Sunday 31 July 2022

Fulfilling Lives Newcastle Gateshead was an eight-year programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.  One of twelve Fulfilling Lives programmes operating across the country, we spent our eight years working to improve the lives of people facing challenging circumstances such as homelessness, substance misuse, mental ill health and the criminal justice system.

Our approach has been to test, learn and share our experiences, with people with lived experience walking alongside us and using their voices to underpin everything we do to help us work towards our aims to create systems change and build a trauma-informed approach within Newcastle and Gateshead services.

We are incredibly grateful to the National Lottery Community Fund for giving us the opportunity to make our work happen and thankful for the ongoing support of our core partners Changing Lives, Oasis Community Housing and Mental Health Concern.

And finally, thank you to all of the FLNG Experts by Experience, past and present, for sharing your stories, views, ideas and experiences with us – we couldn’t have done any of our work without you and we know that principles and belief in co-production will be taken forward by you in everything you go on to do.

Nothing about us without us.
