Liverpool Waves of Hope
Liverpool Waves of Hope is part of the Big Lottery’s national Fulfilling Lives programme with the primary aim of influencing systems change to ensure there are appropriate services in place to support adults with complex needs.
The £10m project is one of 12 in England to receive the Big Lottery funding to provide intensive support for adults with needs in at least three of the following areas: homelessness, reoffending, substance misuse and mental health. There are four main aspects to the programme delivered through a partnership of local experienced providers; intensive support, an accommodation based support service, peer mentoring and Waves New Beginnings, which provides meaningful activities for service users.
Services delivered as part of the Liverpool Waves of Hope programme provide a level of support otherwise unavailable to clients in the City. Working with people that have lived experience of the complexities faced by clients in navigating support services ensures there are no wrong doors for those that need help.
We have placed client engagement at the heart of what we do to enable to be involved with the development, management, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of the programme; understanding that co-creation model is fundamental to improving outcomes.
The project is funded until June 2019.
We produce regular policy and learning papers that reflect our work.Find out more
