We are delighted that this year’s Face Equality Day on the 23rd May will launch a year of campaigning and actions specifically for children and young people with visible differences across the UK: Proud to be Me -The Future of Face Equality. We would love you to get involved and show your support.
We have launched a report today which highlights the pressure on young people to look a certain way. Looking Different: The Future of Face Equality– highlights that less than a third of young people would be friends with someone with a visible difference. The findings also confirmed what many you people with a visible difference tell us, that they are frequently stared at, pointed at and even have their photo taken by people when they are out in public. Click here to view the report.
Our young champions; Nikki Lilly, Rory, Amy, Marcus and Sophie share their stories of what it’s like to look different and how they are proud to have their visible differences as they are part of what makes them who they are.
