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

New research on Sectarianism on Social Media in Scotland shows more work needs to be done. 

This report presents findings from the 2017 Sectarianism on Social Media survey on the use of sectarian language on social media. Social media is a space where sectarianism is often seen but not necessarily monitored or reported. This research fills this gap and is the first survey to explore in detail people’s perceptions on sectarianism online and especially on social media.

The research was carried out by YouthLink Scotland in partnership with ScotCen Social Research.
