Partnerships

At Lankelly Chase we seek to build the capability of organisations to achieve change in our priority areas, we offer either project funding to enable organisations to pursue specific changes, or core funding to support the overall strategies of organisations that align with our priorities.

We create a network of pioneering practice whose aim is to promote more powerful ways of preventing and addressing disadvantage, and support coalitions where people experiencing multiple needs are listened to.

We aim to create a space within which severe and multiple disadvantage can be collectively analysed and discussed by people and organisations in different fields and disciplines.

We are developing this area of our site, but for now you will find a list of the programmes and partnerships we currently work with below.

Promoting Change Network

The Promoting Change Network (PCN) is a dynamic group of people and organisations. The network is made up of funded projects and other collaborators who are committed to working together to drive change for people facing severe and multiple disadvantage.

Network members are working to illuminate hidden aspects of the experience of people facing severe and multiple disadvantage, shift commissioning practices, find new ways to give power to service users and provide excellent, person-centred, transformative services.

People come together for large residential events, and in smaller groups, to focus on overcoming isolation and sparking reflection and on having the challenging conversations that it can be difficult to have elsewhere. The network is exploring how we can model some of the change we want to see, through its own methodology, building new relationships, shifting power and engaging in open-space conversations.
