Discrimination and Social Exclusion Resources
We live in a world of inequalities with many disadvantaged people who face discrimination throughout their lives. This prejudice can be linked to their social status, financial standing, age, sex, disability or religion. Discrimination is often apparent in the workplace and some individuals are victimised on the grounds of their race, religion or personal beliefs. Although there are laws that exist in various countries to protect against discrimination, it still occurs in many organisations.
Discrimination often goes hand in hand with social exclusion, which shares many of the same traits. To be socially excluded means to be denied access to rights and opportunities that other members of society enjoy. One example of social exclusion that affects many people is poverty. People who are born into poverty are at a disadvantage in a number of ways. They will face issues in relation to decent housing, unemployment and financial problems, and their children are more likely to struggle at school than children from more affluent households. The knock-on effect of this is that they will often end up in poorly paid jobs, or they may not be able to find work at all.
Discrimination and social exclusion pose a major threat to the health and wellbeing of individuals. All Resources produces publications that investigate social issues and which strive to promote fairness and equality for all.
Discrimination and Social Exclusion Topics
The discrimination and social exclusion topics we produce resources for include:
- Disadvantaged People
- Social Exclusion
- Cycle of Unemployment
- Financial Problems
- Access to Rights
- Equality for All
We publish digital discrimination and social exclusion resources for schools to provide help, guidance and education on various discrimination and social exclusion issues. The digital discrimination and social exclusion resource packs we produce give discrimination and social exclusion information that informs and educates in a classroom setting.
Our discrimination and social exclusion resources for teachers include discrimination and social exclusion resource packs that cover a variety of topics as well as our lesson plans on discrimination and social exclusion.
Teaching students about discrimination and social exclusion is important. Our aim is to produce resource packs that deal with the information in an educational way that also supports those teaching discrimination and social exclusion to their students.
