Members received information regarding Show Racism the Red Card by Azeem Ahmad which included:
• Who is Show Racism the Red Card
• What do we do?
• Funding sources
• Wear Red Day
• Approach to education
• Attitudes

Points of discussion included:


• Numbers of Hate Crimes reported had risen; this could be as a result of improved recording by Police.

• 5% of children have attended Show Racism the Red Card events throughout the Borough. School competition flyers were sent out to every school via Children Services.

• Pressures were growing around funding; Trade Unions were the largest supporter. No funding is given by the Premier League or the Football Association.

• Teachers no longer receive the right level of information and tutoring at University therefore unable to address any race issue. It was suggested Staff and Councillors were offered training around racism.

• The aim was to build philosophical skills for young children, develop empathy, giving them the trust and faith to reach their own decisions and equipping them with tools to achieve this.

• Funding from ‘Stronger Britain Together' would be used for Targeted Interventions dealing with Secondary pupils identified as having extreme views.

• Peer pressure was not the the biggest issue for young people. People who have worked with the programme state media was the biggest influence.
