FPP’s 20th Birthday Event?
In July First Person Plural held its AGM followed by a celebration of twenty years working to improve the lives of people who are affected by complex dissociative disorders. We have achieved much by working in collaboration with other individuals and organisations with similar aims and ethos. We are not complacent, we know there is still a very long way to go before everyone affected by DID and similar conditions receives all the help and support they need as a right. But we also know that compared to where recognition and services for these conditions was in 1997 we have played a significant part in improvements. Twenty years of survival and success is something to celebrate. We held an FPP Members and Guests Open Meeting, with a short concert performed by The Howling Wolves community choir from Wolverhampton; we ate cake; and the choir led everyone in a natural singing workshop that was enjoyed by all who attended – either as participant or audience according to choice. We had laid on facilities for craft and arts activities just in case not everyone wanted to join in with the singing…. but they weren’t needed because everyone was having so much fun.
