We are very proud of our schools champions: volunteers who give talks in schools across England about Face Equality. You can find out more about this great team here – let us know if you work at, attend or have children at a school and would like one of the champions to come in. http://qoo.ly/ijeah

The champions will share their own experiences of looking different, but also talk about the importance of not judging or discriminating against someone who looks different. Our Disfigurement in the UK report showed how prevalent bullying based on appearance is within schools. We want a society which is fair, equal and inclusive. And we believe that educating our young people is a crucial first step towards this. Contact Phyllida Swift, our campaigns officer if you want to discuss booking a talk: 02073919286, phyllida.swift@changingfaces.org.uk.

This week it's National Hate Crime Awareness Week. We know from the Disfigurement in the UK report we produced earlier this year that there are high levels of harassment and abuse which people with disfigurements experience on a regular basis. And certain settings have emerged as 'high risk' environments: public transport, retail spaces, the workplace - and of course not forgetting online. We found that this often goes unchallenged. Numerous incidents of abuse in public spaces and online towards people with disfigurement go unreported and unnoticed by the appropriate authorities.

We want the 1 in 111 people in the UK with a disfigurement to realise that this is not something which should be tolerated. We want to empower people to identify and report this kind of abuse. And as ever, we want to educate wider society about the prejudices which still prevail.

Have you experienced something like this? Did you feel able to report it? The law does offer protection, but sometimes we do not realise a crime has been committed. We are here to support you, you are not alone.
