Step Up to Stop Hate (London Scholars)

Project: Other


London Scholars funded project to work with young people aged 16 plus in four Newham schools/colleges to raise awareness and understanding around hate crime and provide practical guidance on how to act and seek support as a victim or bystander. Peer-to-peer workshops co-designed and delivered by UEL students trained, supported and supervised by UEL staff. Workshop participants learn how to recognise hate crime, share their own experiences, and explore different options for responding to hate-driven incidents, including safe intervention techniques and reporting. They were then supported by community organisers from Citizens UK to develop and carry out their own projects. This led to a NUS campaigning award nomination for NewVic, a Newham Youth Assembly and rolling out of the project through schools.
