‘This experience has been life changing. I have truly learned more about myself and gained a better awareness of other people. I didn't think it would be possible to gain an education that will stay with me forever in 3 days, but I did!'
‘This training gave me a real insight into a range of hate-related problems in my own community'
'I have a more empathetic and properly addressed approach to bias, prejudice, harassment and violence.'
‘Speak out in a more confident way when expressions of prejudice occur and encourage others to do the same.'
‘Thank you for the opportunity to be a participant in such a wonderful experience.'
'Another tool in the box to combat hate crime, racism and sectarianism.'
'This knowledge will definitely be a very good strong tool for me to help people (victims) to learn how to face and challenge future hate crimes'.
