Supporting People with Complex Needs
One-Ipswich's Community Strategy (Everybody Matters: 2008-10), states that 'complex social issues can only be addressed through joined up working practices' (p4).
A recent series of seminars - the Chaotic Lifestyles Project Seminars - were set up in partnership with private, public, community and voluntary organisations to address the needs of people with chaotic lifestyles.
These events aimed to build consensus across the different agencies about what local priorities should be when tackling social exclusion and supporting those with complex intensive needs.
The report and feedback from this seminar are available to download as PDF files:
If you have any comments, views, queries or concerns that you would like to raise, or if you would like to make a presentation at an Area Forum on a local issue please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
