Fairer Future for Race Equality in Scotland

We are working with the Scottish Government to set up a team of 15 people, aged 14-21 to create a young people’s vision for Race Equality in Scotland. We’re looking for young people from ethnic minority communities and those who are passionate about race equality to participate. No previous experience required!

Between March and June 2017 facilitated by Young Scot and supported by CRER and BEMIS, the team will meet up and explore the Race Equality Framework’s main areas including:

  1. Community and safety
  2. Participation and representation
  3. Education and learning
  4. Employability
  5. Health
  6. Family and Home

The project will come up with a series of ideas and recommendations for The Scottish Government and other organisations in Scotland. Your team will host a National Ideas Gathering Event on the 28th of June 2017 with young people and organisations to help shape policy, services and challenge attitudes by developing new ideas for now and the future!

“Do it. 100% get involved. It's a great experience that you'll absolutely love. There are so many opportunities available that will help you later in life. Just get that foot in the door.” - Co-design Volunteer
