Celebrating Pride 2024: We are everywhere

A message from us

26th June 2024

As we embrace Pride Month in June, a time to celebrate the diversity and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community. This year's theme, "We Are Everywhere," serves as a powerful reminder that LGBTQ+ individuals are a vital part of every community, including our own. At Karibu, we are committed to fostering an inclusive, supportive, and safe environment for all our residents.

The importance of inclusivity

Inclusivity is at the heart of our mission. We believe that everyone deserves to feel safe, respected, and valued in their home and community. This Pride Month, we reaffirm our commitment to ensuring that our housing communities are welcoming spaces where diversity is not only accepted but celebrated.

Creating safe spaces

We understand the unique challenges that LGBTQ+ individuals may face in securing and maintaining housing. Our policies are designed to protect against discrimination and to promote fairness and equality. If you ever feel unsafe or discriminated against, please reach out to our support services. We are here to listen and to act.

Support and resources

We are proud to offer various resources to support our LGBTQ+ residents. Whether you need assistance with housing issues, mental health support, or advice on navigating life as an LGBTQ+ individual, we are here to help. Our team is trained to provide confidential and compassionate support, ensuring that your needs are met with the utmost respect and care.

Stories of pride and resilience

Pride Month is a time to share stories of strength and resilience within the LGBTQ+ community. We encourage our residents to share their experiences and stories. By doing so, we can foster a deeper understanding and appreciation for the diverse journeys that make up our community. Your stories are a testament to the theme "We Are Everywhere," highlighting that LGBTQ+ individuals contribute to every aspect of our society.

Fostering a sense of belonging

Belonging is a fundamental human need, and we strive to create a sense of belonging for all our residents. This means acknowledging and celebrating the unique identities and experiences that each resident brings to our community. We are dedicated to promoting policies and practices that support diversity and inclusion.

Continuing the conversation

Pride Month is not just a time for celebration but also for reflection and action. We encourage our residents to engage in conversations about LGBTQ+ rights, history, and issues. Understanding and empathy are crucial in building a truly inclusive community. We are committed to continuing these conversations throughout the year, not just in June.

Our commitment

At Karibu, our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community is unwavering. We pledge to:

  • Ensure fair and equal treatment in housing.
  • Provide support and resources for LGBTQ+ residents.
  • Foster an inclusive and welcoming community.
  • Celebrate diversity in all its forms.

Join us in celebrating Pride

As we celebrate Pride 2024 under the theme "We Are Everywhere," we invite all our residents to join us in recognising and honoring the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community. Together, we can create a housing community where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.

Happy Pride Month!
