Collective Voice welcomes news that The Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) coalition – formed of the national charities Clinks, Homeless Link and Mind – has received £2.78 million in new funding from the Big Lottery Fund to significantly expand support for people with multiple needs across England over the next five years.

Commenting on the award, Paul Hayes said, “Tackling drug and alcohol issues in isolation from the multiple problems which typically accompany dependence is doomed to failure. Collective Voice  supports the MEAM Coalition’s efforts to showcase how integrated services can benefit service users and their communities.”
