The Wider Community

Increasing Awareness for the Wider Community

We offer a range of services aimed at increasing the awareness of the wider community about race, ethnicity and diversity issues. We deliver specific educational programmes aimed at young people; training programmes for professionals and awareness raising campaigns aimed at the wider public.

Our educational programmes for children and young people can be delivered in a variety of formats to adapt to different age groups, time-scales and issues. All of these workshops can be adapted in different formats, e.g. a Classroom-based lesson; whole school Assembly; half-day or one-day session. Topics include:
