Walsall Bridges: Celebrating Personal Growth and Support

LEAF image

We are thrilled to share the inspiring journey of Amy, who joined Walsall Bridges in late July. Facing anxiety and uncertainty about her sexuality, she worried that her parents might not accept her due to religious reasons. Being a young individual, she also lacked essential life skills and knowledge.

With the support of our dedicated team and support from her engagement officer, Tammy, Amy embarked on a transformative path. We guided her through various aspects of life, including understanding mortgages, finances, and finance options. Tammy also helped her navigate the complexities of benefits and even assisted her in getting on the electoral register.

But our support didn’t stop there. Recognising the importance of finding a community that understands her unique experiences, we connected Participant A with valuable resources within the LGBTQI+ Muslim community. This additional support network has proven to be a source of strength, empowerment, and understanding.

Today, we celebrate Amy’s remarkable progress. Her journey is a testament to the power of empathy, guidance, and community. We are immensely proud of her growth, resilience, and determination to embrace her true self.

Let’s continue to uplift and support one another, creating a world where everyone feels accepted and celebrated for who they are. Together, we can make a difference!
