Everyone is different - you'll see this repeated throughout our website and glossary - so everyone's needs and requirements for aftercare are different.
Common aftercare practices include, but certainly aren't limited to:
- Support of marginalized people and groups across the spectrum
- Taking into account one’s own privilege, where it exists.
- Acknowledging ways in which one's experiences overlap with, and differ from, those of others.
- Focus on issues that one has in depth knowledge of, while lifting up the voices of people with different areas of focus.
