Wolverhampton Wanderers are playing a key role in educating young people about how to tackle racism and discrimination as the club support the Premier League's No Room For Racism campaign.

Over the last week, Wolves Foundation schools officers have led an inclusion workshop at Field View Primary School before delivering an assembly to the pupils of Stowlawn Primary School.

In the activities, the students were shown examples of discrimination, given encouragement around how to address it and who to report it to, and watched a video produced by the Premier League.

“It is vitally important that we highlight the importance of inclusivity in all that we strive to achieve,” said Jonathan Warburton, the education and skills manager with Wolves Foundation, and also the equality, diversity and inclusion lead.

“Through our project delivery, we aim to raise awareness of inclusion right across the city in order to provide as many opportunities as possible for our local communities.”

Celebrating Black History Month

This month also marks Black History Month, a cause that recognises and celebrates the achievements of black people.

In a few weeks' time, Wolves will host a tournament at the Aldersley Arena as part of Premier League Kicks to mark Black History Month.

There will also be a a project called Trailblazers, which looks back at the first black footballers to play for Wolves, including workshops with school groups to shine a light on those players’ brilliant contributions.
