About Us

Celebrate Identity Challenge Intolerance was formed in September 2009 and is based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England.

Aside from the training with its emphasis on tackling prejudice and it's manifestations, Celebrate Identity Challenge Intolerance are committed to impressing upon participants the right to celebrate aspects of identity. We believe this to be a fundamental cornerstone of Equality and that is contributory to why it is reflected in our name.

The wealth of experience we have has seen us deliver more than 500 training days on Equality, Diversity, racism, religious prejudice and Hate Crime.

We are often requested regularly to give legal advice, written opinions, and expert testimony in criminal proceedings around racism, religious prejudice and Hate Crime. To date we have been successful in every case we have been asked to provide expertise in.

Our depth of knowledge has us being asked by media on a regular basis in Scotland, England and Ireland for expert analysis on racism, religious prejudice, homophobia, Equality etc. This includes Sky TV, BBC, Talksport, CNN, RTE and others.
