Stand Against Violence will be at the Education Show 17-19th March

Monday 24th January 2011

If you’re thinking about visiting the Education Show on March 17-19th 2011, why not pop over to stand number N51 in Hall 6 to meet Adam Fouracre, the founder of the charity Stand Against Violence. Adam set up the charity to help bring awareness of the devastating effects of violence into schools via free teaching resources because of a tragic incident close to him.

Stand Against Violence is a UK registered charity with a focus on anti violence awareness and education. Their educational material also has a strong alcohol awareness factor and is aimed at 14-25 year olds. Their resource uses a true story of violence and is ideal for use in Secondary schools in subjects such as Citizenship and PSHE. Their resources have repeatedly had a prolonged and positive impact on young people including changes in behaviour and attitudes towards violence. The Stand Against Violence resources are also used by organisations working with young offenders and behavioural support. Adam Fouracre started working with local schools by giving talks and presentations to groups of pupils and also became involved with PSHE programs he is now working on increasing awareness and expanding the resource to a national level.

“Occasionally in teaching, you come across a resource that you know will have a dramatic impact on the students in the classroom.  The challenging subject matter in the Stand against Violence resource provoked some incredible and emotive discussions from all of the young people. I would thoroughly recommend this resource, and will add my lesson plans to the website. As one young learner said - ’This has made an impact on my life that will stay with me for life’" - Head of PSHE/Citizenship, The King’s School, Ottery St Mary.
