Stigma can be deeply hurtful and isolating, and is one of the most significant problems encountered by vulnerable groups within society, when someone experiences the prejudice caused by stigma it not only has a negative impact on them, their family’s but also the local community. We know stigma can be used to exclude and marginalise people and as such creates an exclusive community.
It has also been shown that the prejudice and fear caused by stigma can prevent people from not only seeking the help they need, but it can also stop people offering help or being supportive to those in society that need it the most.
We know that tackling societies perception of certain groups and challenging the stigma around them is not a problem that can be solved overnight. But we hope that during this event we can look at how we as a group of individuals coming together can have the potential to affect change within our local community and help to lay the necessary foundations for a real and positive transformation of how those most vulnerable in our community are perceived.
With guest speakers, talks around lived experience and also interactive groups this will be an informative but also practical event to see how we as a community can start tackling stigma and make a more inclusive local community.
A chance to fly to Germany on holiday and a chance to benefit charities too, is on offer as a brand new community 6 a side football competition gets ready for kick off in August.
The league – which is run by Leisure Leagues, Europe’s largest provider of small sided soccer - kicks off on 18th August and will take place at Lees Brook Community School every Sunday. Games cost £30 – with the first match free and happen between the times of 6-8pm.
The Leisure Leagues Monthly Star Prize, which is drawn at the end of the season and broadcast live on the firm’s Facebook Page, is an all-expenses paid trip for the whole team to a Bundesliga match.
Leisure Leagues are the only football provider who donates the profits from the league to charities – with Cancer Research UK and The Dogs Trust amongst the recent beneficiaries.
New Business Manager, Jack Bullivant admitted he couldn’t wait to get cracking and said: “We have been running leagues for 30 years and we are really looking forward to bringing our unique brand of football here.”
