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

‘We were invited to Braidhurst High School on the 10th of January to deliver our pilot Hate Crime workshop with S3-S4 pupils.

The content and structure of the workshop was specifically designed to be fun, educational and constructive.

At the end of the workshop a very short evaluation form was handed out to all participants and the feedback was really positive with pupils stating that Sacro staff were engaging and supportive, the comments from the young people are too good not to share:

• ‘Made me realise it could hurt more people’
• ‘It’s made me think before I speak’
• ‘Think about it before you say it you don’t know who could get offended’
•  ‘They gave us a good discussion about everything’
• ‘Wasn’t hard to understand’

Well done to the pupils, it was a pleasure to meet you all and many thanks to the teaching staff and campus cops who supported us on the day.’
