Multiple Disadvantage Day - The Choir With No Name

The Fulfilling Lives programme are holding a national campaign to raise awareness of complex needs and challenge stigma. The campaign consists of 12 true stories of people who have experience of living with complex needs, from around the UK.

The 3rd July marks the first ever Multiple Disadvantage Day and we need you to help make it a monumentous occasion, by allowing as many people as possible to #SeeTheFullPicture so SAVE THE DATE!

BCFT will be collaborating with the Choir With No Name, a choir whose members have been affected by homelessness. They will be performing at Grand Central Station at 2 pm on the 3rd of July. Pop by our stall and pick up more information on Multiple Disadvantage Day and complex needs.

We will also be collaborating with Geese Theatre at 7 pm at the MAC, who will work alongside some of our Experts by Experience to share true stories and lead a discussion with the audience. Tickets are to go on sale for the Geese Theatre performance soon- all are welcome!
