Racist and Faith Targeted Bullying Group

The Racist and Faith Targeted Bullying Group (RFTB) was set up in 2016 to bring together organisations and individuals with expertise and a shared commitment to tackling race and faith targeted bullying. The group's activities were initially funded for two years by the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation and has since been self-funded.

 The purpose of the RFTB Group is as follows:

  • To discuss topics related to racist and faith targeted bullying involving children and young people;
  • To share information and resources that support action to tackle racist and faith targeted bullying; and 
  • To consider collective action of Advisory Group members to raise awareness of race and faith targeted bullying. 

One of the key resources which the RFTB Group have contributed to is a short guide for schools on Tackling race and faith targeted bullying face to face and online which was published in collaboration with the UK Centre for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS). We are currently working on a new strategy for 2020/2021.
