The Pink Paint Project

The Pink Paint Project

Overview

A National Citizen Service cohort of young people developed The Pink Paint Project, as they were keen to spread positive spirits in their local community and raise awareness about where people can find help for mental health issues as many young people struggle with this. They painted canvases and added the Samaritans helpline number onto them, before hanging them up in shops and community centres around Chesterfield (UK). They did a bake sale, making £268 for the Samaritans while raising the Samaritans’ profile. They chose the colour Baker-Miller Pink because it is shown to temporarily reduce aggressive behaviour.

Diversity and inclusion help children learn to empathise with people who are different from them. It makes all young people better learners, allowing them to understand various subjects from multiple points of view. By having access to educational content, each child is able to fully participate in their own learning, which provides them with the skills and resources for later life. At each key stage, we have used the National Curriculum, providing links and examples of how inclusion and diversity can be delivered through a range of subjects or as bespoke lessons as part of the inspire and inform steps of Youth Social Action.
