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

The Herald Scotland has reported that Holyrood's Justice Committee will examine a proposal to repeal legislation aimed at tackling sectarian behaviour at football.

MSPs are looking for views and opinions on MSP James Kelly's bid to repeal the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act. 

Last week saw Mr Kelly lodge his private members bill at the Scottish Parliament.

Justice Committee convener Margaret Mitchell said: "The Act has aroused strong and opposing views about its necessity and effectiveness.

"The Justice Committee is keen to hear the full range of opinions about this significant proposal to remove a law from the statute books."
