Based at the University of Liverpool, Moving On With Life and Learning (MOWLL for short) support adults with learning difficulties become self advocates through innovative and person-centred development programmes.
The organisation has recently launched its FACE Facts campaign, aimed at stopping hate crime – with a particular focus on hate crime committed against people with learning disabilities. We’re very proud to be supporting MOWLL with FACE Facts – and between now and September we’ll be developing a teaching and learning resource pack for secondary schools.
Central to our approach will be consulting both teachers and young people about what they’d like to see in that resource pack. So, supported by Cobalt Housing, we’re launching those conversations this month, in three Liverpool schools: De La Salle Humanities College, Fazakerley High and – on February 1st, St John Bosco Specialist Arts College. We’ll work with thirty students from each school for a whole day in interactive explorations of what hate crime is, how it shows itself and what its impacts are.
Many of the self advocates will be with us to work directly with the young people – and we’ll be meeting with them shortly. And by the end of each day, the students will have designed and created an art installation that illustrates their findings, to be housed in their own schools – and will also have been given training in how to present that piece of art to wider audiences.
“Through FACE Facts and our partnerships with as creatives, Cobalt and Riverside Housing, Merseyside Police and the Crown Prosecution Service, we hope to stamp out negative attitudes and prejudice” (MOWLL)
