What is Action on Sectarianism?

YouthLink Scotland, the National Agency for Youth Work has set up the first independent public website designed to challenge sectarianism in Scotland, supported by the Scottish Government.

Accessible on computers, tablets and mobile phones, this website will act as a central gateway to information and resources tackle sectarianism in Scotland by providing tailored user access to four distinct target groups:

Children and Young people

Adults: parents, carers, community groups

AoS Network: teachers, youth workers, academics, policy officers, community activists

BBC Scotland spoke with a number of current and former match delegates employed by the league to help identify sectarianism. 

Findings showed that they were frustrated at the lack of action taken on the matter despite what they reported.

"It seems like the Scottish Professional Football League is content to sweep the issue under the carpet."

The SPFL has been asked to reveal figures and data relating to sectarianism but it has not yet made this available.

The SPFL states that it condemns any forms of unacceptable behaviour and works with the police and government to address the issues.
