One way we try to do this is by including quotes from real people, in your own words. Quotes can also, sometimes, express emotions and experiences that pure information can’t. You might have seen quotes includes in our publications before. They look like this:
"Just knowing that at least one other person out there has felt like this too helps me feel less alone."
We are really keen to hear from people with diverse backgrounds, including BAME, LGBT, disability or faith, in particular around how your lived experience interacts with your diverse background.
If you would like to share a brief personal quote or two describing your own experiences, we might be able to include it in our future publications.
We are not currently gathering new quotes but do check in here from time to time.
