The latest blog, Hard Edges, is from our director of research and development, Vicki Helyar-Cardwell:
Today’s new report is both a helpful confirmation of some of what we know about people facing multiple and complex needs, and a fresh challenge to the conventional wisdom.
Over the last decade we’ve come leaps and bounds in articulating a case for better addressing people with multiple and complex needs. Indeed the discussion around ‘multiple needs’ or ‘multiple exclusions’ has now shifted from the margins to the mainstream. At Revolving Doors we see this as the work of a host of partners, the weight of real people’s stories and expertise, a growing evidence base and practitioner insight that has collectively started to ‘Turn the Tide’.
Revolving Doors is a charity working across England to change systems and improve services for people with multiple problems, including poor mental health, who are in contact with the criminal justice system.
Our vision is that by 2025 there is an end to the revolving door of crisis and crime, when anyone facing multiple problems and poor mental health is supported to reach their potential, with fewer victims and safer communities as a result.
