Free Resources for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Schools

EqualiTeach’s free resources have been carefully designed in collaboration with leading partner organisations.

A selection of our resources are included below for educators to use in their settings to promote equality, celebrate diversity and tackle discrimination.

Most of these documents are PDF files that can be downloaded, saved and printed. Some have resource guides which include accompanying documents, PowerPoints and worksheets.

If you would like to commission the development of a new or tailored resource, please get in touch.
