Amy Winehouse's father has lent his support to an initiative which will see up to £100 million invested in helping people struggling with issues such as addiction, homelessness, reoffending, substance misuse and mental health problems.
The funding from Big Lottery Fund (Big) will go towards bringing together different services to help those with multiple needs.
The charity said there are an estimated 60,000 adults in England with multiple problems, many of whom would benefit from one single service to prevent them rotating around various welfare and justice systems which can deepen the problems in their lives.
The project will focus on 15 areas of the country where organisations tackling such issues will be invited to create partnerships in each area.
Supporting the initiative, Mitch Winehouse, who alongside family members established The Amy Winehouse Foundation last September, said: "Since losing my daughter Amy, I have been dedicated to supporting charities that help young people in need - in particular those struggling with an addiction or health issue.
"So I am extremely pleased to hear that the Big Lottery Fund is investing this money to bring organisations together to offer people of all ages more tailored support to deal with all the different needs that they may have."
The initiative aims to help people like Jodie, 30, from Manchester, who has been in and out of services relating to her drug and alcohol misuse for years.
She also developed an eating disorder and mental health issues and has described experiencing disjointed services which she said have led to her "slipping through the net a lot".
She said: "There was one place for alcohol only, one for drugs, one for mental health, one for housing. It's difficult to get support for every aspect of your life - it's easy to give up when the system works against you."
Partnerships who successfully apply for funding will receive between £4 million and £10 million for between five and eight years.
During the investment Big will gather evidence which will shed light on more effective and efficient ways of organising and delivering services for people with multiple needs and the significant savings in health and criminal justice costs.
Big England chairman Nat Sloane said: "This eight-year investment of up to £100 million is aimed at improving the stability, confidence and capability of people who are living in the most chaotic circumstances with multiple and complex needs so they lead more fulfilling lives and have better life chances as a result of timely, joined-up and supportive services.
"It is not just people but communities that are impacted by ineffective contact with support services. Department of Health figures suggest it is four times more expensive for hospitals to care for homeless people.
"Also, Home Office research has suggested a problem drug user costs the Government £10,400 a year in reactive expenditure and in social costs around £35,450."
Paul Farmer, chief executive of mental health charity Mind, said: "We welcome this significant long-term investment by the Big Lottery Fund and hope that it will help create improved services and lead to better outcomes for people with multiple needs and exclusions.
"Thousands of people with mental health problems face a multitude of challenges such as homelessness and substance abuse, yet all too often the joined-up tailored services they need are simply not available.
"Passed from pillar to post, many go on to lead chaotic lives and are more likely to be in contact with emergency services and the criminal justice system rather than suitably integrated support services.
"We hope that this funding will make a real difference to their lives, and change the way that all services for this most vulnerable group will be delivered."
Campbell Robb, chief executive at Shelter, said: "Every day at Shelter we help people who are desperately struggling to keep a roof over their heads. From our experience we know that many people are often facing a complex set of problems, and only by working to address all of their needs as a whole can we help break the cycle of homelessness they often face.
"We very much welcome the Big Lottery Fund's commitment to invest in these integrated services that will help homeless people get back on their feet. Particularly at a time when more and more people are finding it hard to make ends meet, we hope this will make a big impact on the lives of many vulnerable people."
