Introduction to Service

York's Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) team provides intensive support and multi-agency coordination to a caseload of multiply excluded adults with challenging circumstances. They often have a history of poor engagement or exclusion from local services. We aim to break down these barriers to ensure they are receiving support appropriate to their individual needs.

We work closely with partner agencies at an operational level to develop multi-agency care plans as our people experience several problems at the same time such as homelessness, offending, substance misuse, mental ill health, family breakdown and social isolation.

Key Information

We offer:

  • One-to-one intensive support
  • Street outreach
  • Housing First in partnership with the City of York Council
  • Ongoing support throughout the criminal justice system and prison
  • Client-led, multi-agency meetings to develop appropriate care planning and support
  • Indefinite support for as long as is required
