Teachers and education professionals can help children face disfigurement with confidence

Schools Outreach in Scotland

Schools Outreach in Scotland

Our Schools Outreach Officer can deliver free of charge Face Equality workshops to primary and secondary pupils, which raise awareness of appearance-related bullying and offer advice on interacting respectfully with someone with a disfigurement.

Our pupil workshops contribute to the delivery of CfE Health and Wellbeing Experiences and Outcomes and support existing rights-based approaches to learning in schools. We also offer workshops based on the novel Wonder by RJ Palacio, which explore the issues of appearance-related bullying and face equality via key incidents from the book.

Our Schools Outreach Officer can deliver free professional learning sessions for staff too, which focus on creating an inclusive learning environment, addressing issues of appearance-related bullying and supporting pupils who have a disfigurement.

If you would like us to work with your school, please contact us via scotland@changingfaces.org.uk or on 0345 450 0640.
