Blackpool Fulfilling Lives
Local authority boundaries of Blackpool
WHAT THE PROJECT DOES
A primary feature of the project is the provision of assertive outreach to engage potential service users; once engaged trained ‘navigators’ will assist individuals through the existing infrastructure of third sector, statutory and private enterprise providers who deliver services across the four complex needs areas within Blackpool. Other key features include:
- Provision of service from 10am-11pm, 7 days per week, 365 days a year: This is provided due to indications that individuals with MN are most vulnerable during unsocial hours as local services within the area provided limited or no availability during these hours.
- Individuals with ‘lived experience’ will work on the delivery of the project through a number of roles, including: paid navigators, service user volunteers and peer mentors: These roles will provide expert citizen experience and capacity within project delivery and also allow for sustainable development opportunities for service users who go through the programme offered by the project.
