Former England Rugby international Ben Cohen visited The Elmgreen School in Tulse Hill to support leading anti-bullying charity Diversity Role Models (DRM).

Year nine students at the school were participating in DRM’s workshops that tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

DRM’s work involves role models, teacher training and collaboration with individuals and organisations to counter negative stereotypes based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Ben Cohen, MBE, said: “We are very happy to be in a position to support Diversity Role Models.

“They deliver a fantastic programme and we are really looking forward to seeing their work first hand.

“We truly believe that working collaboratively with quality organisations like DRM can bring an end to bullying.”
