The National Expert Citizens Group (NECG)

The NECG aims to improve the support available for people who experience multiple disadvantage.

The National Expert Citizens Group (NECG) is a representative group whose members have lived experience of using Fulfılling Lives services. The NECG uses its insight to collaborate with decision makers with the aim of improving systems and services.

The Fulfılling Lives programme supports people who are experiencing multiple disadvantage in 12 areas across England. Its aim is to improve the support available for people who experience multiple disadvantage. Multiple disadvantage is defıned by Fulfılling Lives as people who experience two or more of the following: homelessness, a record of current or historical offending, substance misuse, and mental ill health.

Revolving Doors coordinates, facilitates and administers the NECG forums, equipping its members with the skills and opportunities to affect systems change.

Take a look at some of the NECG’s work below.

Creating the NECG Strategic priorities

The NECG’s approach and priorities were developed between August and December 2019. They aim to capture the most important issues for people using Fulfilling Lives services. NECG members consulted their wider lived experience group to best ensure views are representative.
