Hate Crime - equality ambassador programme

Just Lincolnshire

A on hour workshop to enable students to become equality ambassadors in their school. This training can be used as evidence towards helping you achieve SMSC.


This workshop aims to raise awareness of :

  • what a Hate Crime is
  • how to recognise it
  • how it can affect the lives of people and communities
  • how to report it
  • the barriers to reporting 
  • how we can work together to make things better
  • how so call ‘mates’ can take advantage
  • how people from many different backgrounds can work together to make things better
  • the link between Hate Crime awareness and the British values of Democracy, Rule of Law and Tolerance
  • equality ambassadors within the school enabled to cascade knowledge among their peer

Some learning centres, staff and learners have identified how this work will continue, including:

  • “PSHE - Understanding disability and what makes us different”
  • “RE - Religions around the world - challenging stereotypes”
  • “Gender Equality - He for She campaign”
  • “We have a Paralympic sport set which we can use to try some Paralympic sports in PE”
  • “The school council will continue their work with all the classes. It is likely that we will add it to our school council agenda”
