Face Equality Day 2018

Face Equality Day

Face Equality Day 2018 was themed around the experiences of children and young people with visible differences.  Looking Different: The Future of Face Equality was the research we commissioned as part of the campaign, which highlighted the pressure on young people to look a certain way. 

Why young people?

Our research, shows that almost half of young people who look different are bullied about their appearance at school. The vast majority – nearly 90% – say their primary school did not succeed in stopping the bullying.

We gave the public a unique insight into how young people feel about their appearance whilst highlighting appearance-related bullying and what needs to change to truly achieve Face Equality.

Vlogger and baking ace Nikki Lilly joined our Youth Action Group to help us talk about #FaceEquality and #Proudtobeme as well as help us to plan our key resources and activities.
