Our mission

At Fair Action we deliver interactive sessions on issues that directly impact young people in today’s society. We discuss difficult topics, like hate crime and stereotypes, and how best to talk about them constructively.

We enable our participants to learn about issues that they can influence in their everyday lives – from increasing their awareness of other cultures to developing empathy. We provide an environment where students can open their minds, and explore attitudes and behaviours that will empower them, in a fun and constructive setting.

Why we do it

We believe that changing attitudes is not simply a matter of teaching young people about discrimination and prejudice. For change to occur, children must learn why it happens.

Recent history has shown that fearing difference can only lead to hate, anger and violence.

Our goal is to not only help young people understand these issues, but also to shed light on the reasons for these attitudes and why people hold them.

How we do this

The way we approach discrimination is unique. We research and we teach.

In order to keep up with an increasingly diverse and dynamic society we strive to produce relevant and contemporary research that drives state-of-the-art approaches to the problems our society faces.

We take what we’ve learned to young people, primarily in areas of deprivation and tension, and deliver interactive classes designed to challenge their perceptions.

By encouraging young people to rethink the way they view the world – and how their perceptions of others guide their thoughts and actions – we believe change is possible.

Through our in-depth, focused and research-driven approach we help children build an understanding of why they think the way they do and why they may see others as different.

By equipping children with these tools, we empower them to challenge prejudice and contribute to equality.
