Challenge Stigma began as a series of online events exploring the stigma people are facing in Inverclyde, across a huge variety of issues. The key feature of this series is the inclusion and focus placed on people with lived-experience, so that we can begin to tackle stigma in a real and meaningful way. These events were a huge success, and the movement continues to gain momentum in highlighting and subsequently addressing and reducing the stigma that people face every day, as well as the impact it has on their success and quality of life.

From the initial learning gathered at the Challenge Stigma events, we have since started work on a Stigma Training Programme. We hope this will help to educate the community about the presence and impact of stigma, as well as ways to actively challenge and reduce stigma in our society.
