Multiple Disadvantage Day 2019
Over the last year the National Communications Group, comprising of representatives from all 12 fulfilling lives areas, have been in consultation with key stake holders and the National Expert Citizens Group and will be launching a dedicated Multiple Disadvantage Day, on July 3rd 2019.
As a national voice for change we hope to raise awareness of the complicated and interconnected nature of the issues faced by some of the most marginalised and vulnerable members of our community, in a bid to reduce associated stigma and increase understanding as to why a person may find themselves experience multiple and complex needs.
The campaign launches on Monday 3rd June 2019 so keep your eyes peeled on social media for material and information leading up to the big day on Wednesday 3rd July when Events will be happening across the UK.
