Do you think your school or youth group would benefit from some help in explaining appearance-related bullying? Almost 50% of young people told us they've experienced bullying at school related to the way they look. You could help tackle this by running a ‪#FaceEquality‬‬‬‬‬ Day workshop in your school or youth club - order our free education pack ‪https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/60AVI/ #Proudtobeme

Last year, Changing Faces launched our first ever #FaceEquality Day – and it was a great success, thanks to all our supporters. This year’s Face Equality Day, on 23 May, is focused on young people – because we know how significant the pressures around appearance are for this group. We’ve been so lucky to be helped by a fantastic Youth Action Group, and the likes of Nikki Lilly pledging support - and we’d love your support too! Please have a look at the range of ways you can get on board. Just wearing a temporary butterfly tattoo or posting a selfie with our selfie boards helps our campaign for #FaceEquality ! https://www.changingfaces.org.uk/campaigns/face-equality/face-equality-day-2-2

Isn't this fabulous? It's a butterfly created by our skin camouflage team, using their materials, to celebrate our forthcoming #FaceEquality day (only a few days to go - Wednesday 23rd May!). If you'd like to get involved in Face Equality Day, there are lots of things you can do - cake sales at work, sharing selfies, lesson plans if you work in a school or youth group, or sharing your thoughts and stories using #FaceEquality and #Proudtobeme . We can't wait! https://www.changingfaces.org.uk/campaigns/face-equality/face-equality-day-2-2
Here's a sheet you can print out, and fill in with your thoughts on what Face Equality means to you - hold it up for, snap a quick selfie and share!

People who look different can experience depression, anxiety, embarrassment, lack of confidence and low self-esteem. They have to cope with staring, intrusive questions and unhelpful or inappropriate comments. Past research from Changing Faces has found that there is not always enough awareness among health and social care professionals that people with a different appearance may need emotional support.
