It was a truly impressive session that really delved into the views of the students who contributed greatly to the discussions. We’re grateful to the West Ham Foundation for giving us the opportunity to lead this event.

SRtRC educator Manisha Tailor visited the Press Lounge at West Ham’s Upton Park to work with students starting an applied community sports foundation degree programme linked to University of East London.
The talk was on ‘Inclusion and Equality’ with a focus on homophobia. We’re really excited to be doing this important work and to be tackling discrimination on a larger scale. "What a fantastic opportunity to be able to educate young people who illustrated much passion around the topic of homophobia, in partnership with West Ham United Foundation. There was discussion around terminology used towards those who are LGBT and the impact it can have on them and others. The young people were challenged to think about their role within our wider society and what they can do to make a difference. I extended the workshop due to the engagement and debate and felt the young people could certainly have gone on for a few hours - absolutely brilliant!" – Manisha Tailor
