Purple Thursday at C&I

Category: Health and Wellbeing, Hidden Disabilities, NHS, Invisible Disability, Health, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, disability support, Purple Thursday


On Thursday 17 October, C&I turned purple to show support and raise awareness of people living with invisible disabilities. Colleagues from sites across the Trust showed their support by wearing purple items of clothing, and Dave, Pippa and Jo also shared their stories about living with a hidden disability as part of the awareness week.

Debra Hall, Equality and Diversity Lead, said: "Wow. Amazing. C&I Purple Thursday! Never did we expect to see so much purple – right across the Trust. The day brought together both service users and staff in their common cause to raise the awareness of invisible disabilities, break down stigma and to enable change. Thank you all for taking part and supporting C&I Purple Thursday! It is very much appreciated."
