This #GoodNewsFriday and Pride Month, we hear from care provider PossAbilities about their LGBTQ+ group.
PossAbilities host an LGBTQ+ group across the organisation which comprises of both staff and the individuals they support with the objective of providing a safe and supportive environment for all individuals who identify as LGBTQ+.
Amanda Higgs, Head of Quality and Performance at PossAbilities tells us about the overall objectives of the group, as well as some insight into what they’re up to over the coming months.
Amanda told us that the group actively work on the arrangements for the organisation's float for the Manchester Pride parade which they've participated in three times. This year's theme is “Queerly Beloved” and work is already ongoing in preparation for this.
The group has helped people create friendships, and they have casual outings where they visit the GAY Village in Manchester for food and drinks.
Some members of the group shared the following
“I Love going to the group and talking about pride”
“I feel safe when I am out as part of the group”
“I like our day trips out”
Members of the group also shared what they love about being part of the group. They said:
Well done to PossAbilities on creating an inclusive and enjoyable group for the people you support.
