Our Response To Black Lives Matter

We recognise the universal need for change, as expressed in the Black Lives Matter movement, and we are committed to supporting its call to action and being actively anti-racist as opposed to just listening and reflecting. This is a time for right minded people to be pro-active in repairing and redressing. So it’s about standing up against racism. Roundabout places huge importance on equality, diversity, inclusion and on combatting injustice and inequality.

In our work we recognise and act on the importance of lived experience of the communities we serve. The Black Lives Matter movement galvanises us all to recognise and address the ingrained inequalities, biases and pervasive racism that still exist in all parts of society.   

As a dramatherapy charity, and as human beings, we have a responsibility to continue the work of effecting change, in order to be part of the culture that will not tolerate racism, abuse, neglect, harm, hate, inequalities and inequities in society.

Roundabout’s formative and restorative work can actively address anti-racist activity and attitudes. Roundabout supports the Black Lives Matters movement unequivocally, and we join as a community to affirm that Black Lives Matter.
