A Safe Place

Combating Racist Myths Against Asylum Seekers

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16DVDPDFAvailable in Welsh

This film from Show Racism the Red Card addresses issues and attitudes around asylum seekers and refugees. It features the views of young people who are themselves refugees or seeking asylum, as well as the experience of Watford FC player Alhassan ‘Al’ Bangura.

As well as the film, the DVD includes an education pack with suggested activities suitable for work with upper Key Stage 2 to adult. The activities link in with the Citizenship and PSHE curriculum. They are well thought-out and aim to explode a few media myths and develop a sense of empathy amongst students. Additional resources are available on the Show Racism the Red Card website.

This is part of a double DVD box set, including the DVD Islamophobia which aims to challenge stereotypes and prejudice towards Muslims.
