We are really happy to announce we’ve got another charity partner on board - Wight Dash - a domestic abuse hub for women and men on the Isle of Wight. Our first delivery of conversation cards will arrive this weekend.

If you're on the Island please support us - visit the shop at 12 St James St, Newport between 10-4 on Saturdays. and buy a pack of conversation cards.

Conversation Cards - 100% profits go to charity

Our conversation cards have arrived and are now available to buy on ebay. 100% of profits go to support survivors of domestic abuse.

If you don’t know already, we've developed a set of conversation cards which are designed to reset social norms, bring down unconscious bias and tear down the invisible barriers of societal norms. These are for parents who want to find different ways to engage with their kids, and start thoughtful conversations about equality. With 52 different questions ranging from ‘If a man and a woman do the same job should they be paid the same?’ to ‘What makes a person clever’ through to ‘Should celebrities be role models because they’re famous?’ and ‘Do you think aliens exist?’ the cards help develop kids develop key ‘soft skills’ including debate, discussion and persuasion, whilst giving parents cue cards to engage their family.

Together Equal is a campaign which creates one, unified voice for small, local charities who are working towards equality for everyone. Our partners struggle for funding on a daily basis so we wanted to create a way to raise money for them, so they can focus on their great work instead.

Our current charity partners include Berkshire based the Dash Charity and Mums in Need in Sheffield. Every pack of these cards funds charities and social enterprises which support and empower victims of violence.

Welcome to the Together Equal conversation cards. We hope they are the beginning of hours of fun, talk and engagement between you and your kids.

Toxic Masculinity

I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole. Malcolm X

Today we’ve been reading this excellent article about toxic masculinity and the impact on men. It’s time these invisible barriers channelling social norms are brought down so we are all working on a level playing field.
