What is Raising Respect?
Raising Respect is a project to help equip parents and carers when talking to their children and others about respect, gender equality and inclusion.
As parents and carers, we want our children to be safe, connected, and free to grow as their unique selves.
To make this happen, we need to learn how to challenge disrespect and gender stereotypes.
We can all make a difference. Attend an information session or read our brochure below to learn more!
We are running information sessions for groups of parents and carers to learn together about respect, gender equality and inclusion.
Following our successful sessions in March, we plan to run more sessions in May/June 2023. We will schedule these based on the preferences of those who wish to attend.
Register your interest online now!
For groups of 5 or more we can tailor a session booking to your needs.
