Fulfilling Lives has launched a national campaign which aims to reduce stigma by increasing awareness and understanding of multiple and complex needs amongst the general public.
An annual ‘Multiple Disadvantage Day’ is on 3rd July, with 2019’s campaign for change being the first step in providing a national voice for the work of the Fulfilling Lives Programme.
This year’s campaign, ‘See the Full Picture’, will focus on 11 case studies exploring the different experiences of those accessing the programme, and why they came to access services. Through telling the full story and highlighting the challenges of navigating a very complex system, it is hoped that the general public will gain more understanding and think before judging.
The campaign has a dedicated website as well as press and social media coverage, and an event organised by each of the Fulfilling Lives projects for Multiple Disadvantage Day on 3rd July. Fulfilling Lives South East is planning to run a ‘Living Library’ event in Brighton at Jubilee Library, with a musical element and active involvement from service users and staff – for more details please see https://www.multipledisadvantageday.org/events/brighton
The Fulfilling Lives South East Partnership, working in East Sussex, is one of 12 projects across England supporting people with complex needs. The project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and led by BHT, with local delivery teams from our partner agencies Equinox and Oasis Project.
