MEAM are now looking for 10 new areas to join the network

Tuesday, June 14, 2022

MEAM has opened an Expression of Interest process for local areas interested in joining the MEAM Approach Network for 2022 – 2024. The deadline for applications is the 27th June 2022.

The MEAM Approach is a non-prescriptive framework that supports local areas to transform services and systems for people facing multiple disadvantage.

If you would like to join this movement, we invite you to complete an Expression of Interest with your local partners and submit it. Please contact the MEAM team at info@meam.org.uk if you would like to discuss your submission.

To be eligible to apply for this opportunity we ask the following:

  • You have a range of cross-sector, voluntary and statutory partners involved with, and committed to, this application and any future MEAM work.
  • You can demonstrate a commitment to involving lived experience in your work.
  • You are able to resource local MEAM Approach work for the next two years (there is no funding available from MEAM as part of the network).
  • You consider diversity and equality when identifying the cohort of people with which you wish to work.
  • Your area is in any part of England, but we are particularly seeking applications from areas in the North West and Midlands.
  • Your area is not in receipt of Changing Futures investment.
  • If shortlisted, area leads and wider partners are able to attend an interview with the national MEAM team.

Please do reach out if you would like to discuss in advance of applying to Greg Headley Gregory.Headley@homelesslink.org.uk
