THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation Educational Programme

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation’s heart lies in education. We work with young people from the age of seven in primary schools to university students. We deliver educational group-works in schools or train teachers and youth workers to deliver the resource in their work place setting.

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation has educational resources for use in primary and high schools as well as other young peoples’ establishments that teaches young people how easy it is to be more tolerant and open their minds to accept all people regardless of their “difference”. The SOPHIE Game is a paid for resource available for teachers to use in schools and other educational sites across the UK.

Sylvia Lancaster OBE, says:

"To teach young people to be tolerant of others is giving them a crucial skill that will enable them to get on in life. Working many years as a youth worker has taught me that one of the biggest stumbling blocks for many young people is their inability to understand or relate to people from different walks of life to them. Our games will show them simple techniques that help them break through this barrier."

Sylvia continues: "These resources have been my dream since 2007, and it is one of the key things we, as a charity, can do to ensure my daughter didn't die in vain. If this scheme can make young people stop and think twice about judging others on appearance, then it can also stop them from growing up thinking it's OK to insult, abuse or attack someone just because they don't look the same - and that will be a massive accomplishment for our society."

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation offer different options for schools, colleges, youth clubs, young offenders’ institutions and any professionals who work with young people. One of our main priorities has always been to provide a flexible and accommodating service to enable our message to be have a voice.

The Foundation has trained staff who can deliver the game in your school or provide training to educational professionals. We believe this demonstrates our on-going commitment to offer an affordable, personal approach to supporting schools in attaining their "anti-prejudice bullying" strategy in line with OFSTED targets.
