Making Every Adult Matter

What is MEAM?

MEAM stands for Making Every Adult Matter. Connection Support provides a coordinating role across the main services that are working with a particular client to provide a more personalised response. This helps to identify and together remove the blocks that may be stopping the client from receiving the services that they need. We work across Homelessness, Substance Misuse, Criminal Justice and Mental Health services in Oxford City to embed this MEAM approach locally.

Generally, clients are adults who have multiple needs and are currently excluded from many services. Clients are empowered to tackle their problems, reach their full potential and contribute to their communities.

Do you meet the criteria?

The MEAM service is for adults aged over 18, single, no fixed abode, poor or inadequately housed or at serious risk of losing their accommodation and have or more of the following  issues which are  preventing  them from making personal achievements or reaching any of their aspirational needs:

Mental Health
Substance Misuse (including NPS)
Alcohol Misuse
Offending Behaviour
Learning Difficulties
Challenging Behaviour

How can I apply?

Referrals to MEAM are via organisations working with clients with multiple needs who would benefit from this approach.

Referrals and general enquiries can be made directly to the MEAM Co-ordinator based at Connection Support please phone 01865 711267 or email
