People facing multiple disadvantage have been pushed to the extreme margins of UK society. The issues surrounding homelessness, substance misuse, mental health, violence, contact with the Criminal Justice System, domestic abuse and extreme poverty often go unrecognised by services and systems mostly designed to deal with one issue at a time.
Many of Clinks' members work alongside people with multiple disadvantage. At our Annual Conference last November we came together to share best practice and hear about innovative services amongst the members, this conference presents an amazing opportunity to collaborate with our partners and promote the work we do.
Two years ago, the first National Summit brought together a vibrant network of people with lived experience, service providers, commissioners and policy makers; each with different skills and expertise, all committed to achieving change.
Working together we will assess progress, inspire and challenge each other, and discuss the next steps in tackling multiple disadvantage. Over two days a series of workshops will be led and shaped by delegates under four key themes:
- Drawing expertise from lived experience
- Achieving systems change
- Understanding and responding to diversity
- Fostering partnership and collaborations to achieve change
On the final afternoon we will explore what this means for how we move forward together.
