How can partnership and multi-agency arrangements improve local governance and the wider system of support, providing more coordinated 'wrap-around' support and greater collaboration across services?


This webinar will draw on findings of an evaluation of the Wrap Around Multi-Disciplinary Team, a multi-agency partnership forum at Changing Futures Nottingham which provides integrated health and social care support for people who are experiencing Severe and Multiple Disadvantage (SMD) and are struggling to engage with support services available to them. Severe and Multiple Disadvantage (SMD) is generally considered to be an experience of three or more of the following sources of disadvantage simultaneously: mental health issues, homelessness, problematic substance use, domestic abuse and contact with the Criminal Justice System. Changing Futures Nottingham is one of 15 partnerships across the country working towards sustainable improvements in 'the system' which supports people facing Severe and Multiple Disadvantage (SMD). The programme is funded until 2024 by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) and the National Lottery Community Fund.


Carolin Hess is an NIHR SSCR-funded PhD student at HSCWRU, King's College London and Research Fellow at Nottingham Trent University, whose research supports the evaluation of Changing Futures Nottingham.

Jeremy Garner is a Team Leader at Changing Futures Nottingham and Chair/Facilitator of the Wrap Around Multi-Disciplinary Team.

The event, which takes place on MS Teams only, is part of our Homelessness series.
