EACH Launches LGBT Teaching Resource

EACH, The Bristol based award-winning charity for adults and young people affected by homophobia and transphobia is inviting people to a launch event for their dynamic Reach Teaching Resource.

Taking place at St Mary Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre in Bristol on Thursday 18th September, the charities Reach Steering Group will be on-hand to explain all about the resources available to educational colleagues from across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

Between 2010 and 2014 EACH worked with over 3,500 young people across the West of England to co-create the Reach Teaching Resource: a toolkit for teachers and youth workers to challenge homophobic, sexist and cyberbullying. Until now their voices have rarely been heard however our work demonstrates that many young people are engaged and empathise with the issues.

Secondary schools, colleges and youth agencies based in North Somerset, South Gloucestershire or Bristol are invited to attend the launch where they will receive their free copy of the Resource, Celebrate the achievements of young people involved in the Project and Learn how they can challenge homophobic, sexist and cyberbullying in their school

The Reach Teaching Resource includes an education pack for teachers and youth workers containing practical strategies, activities ideas and guidance for challenging homophobic, sexist and cyber bullying, A DVD containing 13 short films on homophobic, sexist and cyberbullying, A visibility pack featuring posters, wristbands and further resources to raise awareness of homophobic, sexist and cyber bullying.
