Multiple Disadvantage Day – Wednesday 3rd July 2019

A campaign launched by the Fulfilling Lives Programme.

Fulfilling Lives is a programme of 12 projects across England, working to support people facing Multiple Disadvantage. Multiple Disadvantage is defined as experiencing some or all of the following – homelessness, mental ill health, offending, domestic abuse, substance misuse.

The Multiple Disadvantage Day campaign aims to reduce stigma by increasing awareness and understanding of Multiple Disadvantage. 

The campaign will focus on a set of 12 case studies – one per Fulfilling Lives project. Each ‘True Story’ will explore the different experiences of those accessing the Fulfilling Lives Programme, and consider why they came to access services in the first place. Through telling the full story, and highlighting the challenges of navigating a very complex system, it is hoped that people will gain more understanding, and think before judging – #seethefullpicture

The message “presents people as more than their circumstance.” It explores a person’s journey, from childhood to adulthood, and highlights potential trigger points which might lead to complex needs. It also considers the assets, hopes and aspirations of a person.
