Here are some of the testimonies from our visits:

 

Obviously extremely important subject matter and it was delivered in a very sensitive and open way. I was particularly impressed with how well the speaker dealt with questions and made the children feel comfortable enough to ask things. It was a lovely, open atmosphere and some wonderful discussions came out as a result. All very thought provoking and I think the children got a lot out of it.  - Teacher from Honeywell Junior School

"I cannot praise the guys highly enough. Shona delivered a fantastic presentation and her level of delivery was spot on for the children. Even the difficult conversations with the protected characteristics with children pre sex education! ( year 5)

I also stayed on for the staff presentation. It was good to have honest open conversations about what would be the right way to address people and the wrong way and the reasons why this was the case. This was something that I had never had the opportunity to ask, why. It also helped staff around supporting the children in their questions too.

Hence, I couldn’t wait to share what you guys deliver with my police colleagues that work in schools and the hate crime hub here at work. I hope you don’t mind, but I have copied them both in here so they can see the good work of your charity."
