MEAM (Making Every Adult Matter) works with some of the most vulnerable people in the community who have often experienced traumatic and chaotic lifestyles and found themselves with no home and nobody to turn to.
Whether residing in a house of multiple occupancy (HMO), homeless and living on the streets, or released from the prison services, these people often come with multiple needs and health issues.
We provide learning and employment support opportunities that are relevant to adults and the local employment market, which can help them achieve their goals.Through our range of programmes, workshops and accredited courses we support adults to get employment, obtain a qualification, develop new skills or increase their confidence.
StreetReach is a project currently operating in Blackburn with Darwen and Burnley in partnership between the public, voluntary and private sectors developed in direct response to the presenting issues in own centre localities, which were negatively impacting on the public, local businesses and the collective economic prosperity of the borough as a whole. Funding for the project has been made available from Lancashire's Police Crime Commissioner and BWD/Burnley Community Safety Partnership.
Our ReConnect service works to support vulnerable adults who have family connections and friends located in another Local Authority area. They might need support to secure accommodation, identify local support networks, establish links back with their family, using a Family Group Conference. Through our support we can ensure that services users begin with a firm foundation before they make the move back to their own community, resulting in longer lasting positive outcomes.
