Making Every Adult Matter

On this page, we talk about our involvement in a charity coalition called MEAM.

What is Making Every Adult Matter?

We're part of a coalition of charities called Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM). Together, MEAM represents over 1,300 frontline organisations across England.

Together, we support local areas to develop effective, coordinated services that directly improve the lives of those of us facing multiple disadvantages.

Those of us facing multiple disadvantages experience a combination of problems. Things like:

  • homelessness
  • substance misuse
  • contact with the criminal justice system
  • mental health problems.

We fall through the gaps between services and systems, making it harder for us to address our problems and lead fulfilling lives.

Transition planning framework during coronavirus

The Coronavirus crisis has had a disproportionate impact on people facing multiple disadvantages. As local areas begin to think about what comes next after the ‘crisis-response’ period, MEAM has collated a series of resources to support transition planning in local areas. The MEAM transition planning framework suggests 4 questions that every local area – and the new homelessness task force – should be considering.
