One way we try to do this is by including quotes from real people, in your own words. Quotes can also, sometimes, get across emotions and experiences that plain 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, LGBTIQ+, 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 publications.
Please note: by submitting a quote through this form, you are giving consent for us to use include your words anonymously in our web pages and printed booklets. We might also use your words when we promote our information, such as sharing it on social media. If you do not want us to use your words like this, please let us know when you submit the form.
We are not currently gathering new quotes but do check in here from time to time.
