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

As a result of the successful Sense over Sectarianism led Tackling Sectarianism resources project in partnership with the Scottish Government and Education Scotland across late 2016 and early 2017, the SOS team were once again asked to lead on a large teaching resource project with the same partners in late 2017.
 
SOS have been delivering the Home Office initiated Workshops to Raise Awareness about Radicalisation (WRAP) across Glasgow City Council for some time and have worked with various partners. This work has centred on the danger of the radicalisation of vulnerable young people by groups such as Islamist Militants, Far Right Groups, Animal Rights Groups and Northern Irish Paramilitary Groups.
 
Clearly this is a sensitive area of work and it is of the utmost importance to ensure that our young people are supported and given the correct educational input to allow them to make the best decisions for their future. 
 
The PREVENT resources project has as a result taken some time to process as a thorough examination and review of existing resources from right across the world has taken place. Several excellent resources have been identified and a short list has now been compiled.
 
Information about the launch of these resources and how to access and deliver them will be available in the near future.
