Free copies People Like Us for UK schools

30 September 2020

We are proud to be working with major educational organisations including BAMEed and Connect Futures to distribute hundreds of free copies of this essential exploration of social mobility to UK schools.

With many students’ educations being adversely affected by the pandemic, this book is more important than ever. And with Black History Month beginning today, it is an ideal time to raise awareness and share the messaging of a book that has changed readers’ lives.

Raised on benefits, barrister Hashi Mohamed knows something about social mobility. In People Like Us, he shares what he has learned: from the stark statistics that reveal the depth of the problem to the failures of imagination, education and confidence that compound it. People Like Us includes practical advice that readers have found invaluable – as proven by the fanmail Hashi receives on a daily basis.

Schools can apply via the website:

Hashi Mohamed arrived in Britain at the age of nine as a child refugee, and is now a barrister at No5 Chambers in London. He is also a broadcaster, having appeared on BBC Radio 4, and presented Adventures in Social Mobility (April 2017) and Macpherson: What Happened Next (2019). He is also a contributor to the Guardian, The Times and Prospect. He mentors many young people at various stages of their career and is also a trustee of Big Education, a trust which oversees three inspirational schools in London and the South East.
