The grant awarded by Lesbians Incorporated will help Soul Sister cover the running cost of future social event activities. Soul Sister will run a story-sharing workshop that is held monthly. It is a safe inclusive space, especially for those who are newly out to find their support network. With the aim to help each other rise higher and raise awareness to look after our mental health (especially during/post-pandemic).
Some of the funds will also go towards supporting this social event which is also equally important to foster connection. Having a circle of friends who accept you as who you are is one way to support improving our mental health.
