Organisations who support those affected by racism
As a project team, we understand that those affected by racism need access to appropriate support. For example, the Race and Education Film Club addresses hard-hitting and potentially upsetting themes which may be difficult and indeed painful to discuss.
As a result, we have we have complied a list of services that provide further and wider support. We highlight that work here. We also advise you to share these links with colleagues, students, and other folks who you feel would benefit from such support.
If we are to truly engage in Anti-racist work, we must tend to and care for our holistic selves, and that of others.
