Bosence - Pledge to Support the Anti-Stigma Network

At Bosence, we are deeply committed to fostering an environment of compassion, understanding, and support for individuals affected by drug and alcohol dependency. As proud members of the Anti-Stigma Network, we pledge to take the following actions to uphold the principles of the network and combat stigma:

Education and Awareness: We will actively educate our staff, residents, and the broader community about the realities of addiction, challenging myths and misconceptions that contribute to stigma.

Inclusive Language: We commit to using and promoting non-stigmatising language in all our communications, ensuring that our messaging is respectful and empowering for those we serve.

Advocacy: We will advocate for policies and practices that reduce stigma and support the rights and dignity of individuals in recovery, working alongside other organisations and stakeholders.

Supportive Environment: We will continue to create a safe and supportive environment within our facilities, where individuals feel valued, understood, and encouraged in their recovery journey.

Community Engagement: We will engage with local communities to build awareness and understanding, promoting a more inclusive and supportive approach to addiction recovery.

Ongoing Training: We will provide ongoing training for our staff to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to combat stigma and support our residents effectively.

By taking these actions, Bosence reaffirms its dedication to breaking down the barriers of stigma and supporting individuals on their path to recovery. Together, we can create a more inclusive and compassionate society.
