Telegraph Christmas Charity Appeal

Telegraph Words Matter Appeal

Right now, people with visible differences are being ignored, abused and silenced, just because they look different.

Research shows direct links between media coverage and appearance-related bullying and hate crime in Britain.

This Christmas, we’re teaming up with the Telegraph as part of their Christmas Charity Appeal to challenge the everyday prejudice fuelling appearance-related bullying and hate crime.

We’ll give a voice to people who look different – to those who have been historically silenced – empowering them to tell their stories and give their answers to the key social challenges facing them today.

Together, we can change the conversation on looking different this Christmas.
