Hate Crime - Equality Ambassador Programme*

A workshop to enable students to become Equality Ambassadors in their school.

Outcomes

  • A workshop to raise awareness of what a Hate Crime is, how to recognise it, how it can affect the lives of people and communities, the barriers to reporting and how to report it. How we can work together to make things better and additionally how so call ‘mates’ can take advantage.
  • The workshop explores how people from many different backgrounds can work together to make things better.
  • This workshop clearly demonstrates a 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 and 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”
