Face Equality Day - Wednesday 23rd May 2018

Today marks our second Face Equality Day. Today we are launching a new research- Looking Different: The Future of Face Equality which highlights the pressure on young people to look a certain way. 

Why are we focusing on 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 will be announcing new research on Face Equality Day that gives a unique insight into how young people feel about their appearance, their experience of appearance related bullying and what they feel needs to change to truly achieve face equality.

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