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

Police Scotland will be running its annual Hate Crime Awareness Campaign in Spring 2018 to increase awareness that tackling Hate Crime is a top priority for Police Scotland and to remind victims and witnesses of the need to report Hate crimes and incidents to the police.

Feedback from previous campaigns has indicated that real examples from victims of hate crime are effective at encouraging other victims to come forward and report crimes and incidents to the police.

To assist them with the upcoming campaign they are looking for your help in identifying a number of people who have been the victim of a hate crime and have had a positive experience of having reported this to Police Scotland.

Victims must be willing to have their experience used as a real-life case study, however these can/will be anonymised.
