Wednesday 3rd July is Multiple Disadvantage Day. This was set up to raise awareness of people who face a combination of different difficulties at once- homelessness, addiction, mental illness and/or re-offending.
This is a really important topic, and at Bench we find that most clients don’t just need support with their housing, but experience some of the other disadvantages too. This Multiple Disadvantage Day we think about how we can work together with different services to provide better, more well-rounded support to those with multiple disadvantages.
