November has been an incredibly busy month for the Scottish team. The team have worked with:
588 young people
1 Grass Roots Football Club
We were thrilled to have been invited to talk at both the Into Film Festival which screened the film Selma, as well as the South Ayrshire Youth Conference which was a wonderful day through which young people had the opportunity to explore a number of Equality and Diversity issues.
Thanks to funding from the Scottish Government and VAF Community Safety Unit, we were allowed the opportunity to engage with young people mainstream education settings in order to create inclusive and tolerant communities. Within this framework, young people learned all about sectarianism, how to challenge it and how to report it all whilst enjoying fun fitness sessions.
Moreover, thanks to the Scottish Government as well as the VAF Equalities team, young people from Leith Walk and Broughton Primary School had the opportunity to come along to Hibernian FC for a day of anti-racism workshops that placed an emphasis on immigrants and refugees so as to increase social cohesion and reduce prejudice and discrimination.
We are also excited that we have re- our partnership with South Ayrshire Council who have been a massive supporter of our campaign, having embarked on a formal partnership since 2012 in order to challenge racism.
