StereNOtyping

StereNOtyping

We recently worked with a group of young people from HeadStart Hull, to develop the StereNOtyping training course. The young people came together and created a range of resources and information to address the issue of stereotyping. They focus on raising awareness of 7 specific stereotypes through their activities. After the success of this event, we are currently on the search for some funding to continue this project and deliver more events.
