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

Colours of our Scarves is a Scottish Government funded project run by Supporters Direct Scotland tackling sectarianism and inequality in sport throughout Scotland.Since 2013, Colours of our Scarves has covered a large area of Scottish football and worked with a number of stakeholders within the game to make it better for everyone. You can see a back catalogue of Colours of our Scarves work.

Now in it’s 5th year, Colours of our Scarves works with key stakeholders within Scottish sport to provide athletes, coaches, organisers and volunteers with a support mechanism, an educational tool and an opportunity for self-reflection and development with a focus on community impact and improving the learning and developmental environment for everyone involved.

With continued funding in 2017-18, Supporters Direct Scotland will work in two main strands.In partnership with the Scottish FA, Colours of our Scarves will build on work conducted with Braidhurst High School School of Football over the last two years. With this, the offer of a 2-hour delivery workshop for the players and coaches will be extended to the remaining 27 Schools of Football across Scotland. Colours of our Scarves also works with educational institutions and students to deliver Equality Sport Festivals within communities, promoting messages of tolerance and acceptance of all.
