Safeguarding resource for schools

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has launched a new anti-hate crime education campaign for schools to help young people tackle homophobic and transphobic abuse.

The campaign provides an educational resource pack which will teach students about the impact of homophobic and transphobic bullying on victims and the potential consequences of this behaviour. The pack includes a DVD and lesson plans for teachers, which are designed to help students discuss stereotypes and prejudice and the impact of this type of bullying on victims.

The resource is available to all teachers to download from the CPS website.
