DDE is planning a new project, Building Global Youth Resilience, which aims with BAME pupils to run a ‘Youth Cultural Champions’ programme, exploring their own cultures and sharing painful experiences and with a group of vulnerable and white British pupils to run ‘Make a Change’ programme, exploring their identities and challenging their outlook on life. For teachers, CPD training will provide insights into challenges pupils face, aiming to motivate them to improve life for all the school community.

In 2017-19 DDE ran a significant and successful project Building a Stronger Britain Together funded by the Home Office, working with Year 8 BAME pupils, vulnerable white British young people and teachers, including Senior Leadership. Without exception the white staff and pupils had no concept of the extent of racism experienced by some pupils.
