Information & opportunities for young people in Scotland

PROJECT: Fairer Future for Race Equality in Scotland

We're working with the Scottish Government to set up a team of people, aged 14-21 to implement the Actions and Recommendations from the Fairer Future project.

Fairer Future was a panel of young people from minority ethnic communities across Scotland, that developed 22 recommendations and 40 ideas for change.

Their vision was:

“For minority ethnic young people in Scotland is to have an equal chance to succeed and flourish in whatever path in life they decide to take, and to feel safe and respected in their home and communities.”
“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

The team will explore the six key themes identified in the phase of Fairer Future and work with Young Scot and the Scottish Government to begin implementing the Recommendations and Actions set out in the first phase Ideas report.

The six key themes identified were: Overarching Work, Community Cohesion and Safety, Participation and Representation, Education and Lifelong Learning, Employability, Employment and Income, and Health and Home.

You can see the report and more about Phase 1 on our corporate website.

The project will run between July 2018 and March 2019.
