Our partners have provided research, action plans, policy documents and teacher resources to encourage action against discrimination, hate crime and prejudice.
Do you have resources that may be useful to other young people and organisations? Submit your video/documents or images.
This resource is a short e-learning activity for young people, which aims to improve their understanding of what discrimination is and how it impacts others. Curriculum for Excellence links are detailed.
"Whilst watching the news together at the outset of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Britain, my eight year old daughter told me that this was the fault of Chinese people. I asked if she knew what racism and discrimination were, and she said that she didn't. As she is learning from home and schools are currently closed, I decided to create this short activity for her. We have turned it into a quick resource as it might be helpful for others in these unprecedented times. I felt that it was a useful activity to help my own daughter understand discrimination and the impact that it has on others."

HOW DO BAME YOUNG PEOPLE IN SCOTLAND PERCEIVE AND EXPERIENCE SECONDARY SCHOOL EDUCATION?
Intercultural Youth Scotland instigated this study after receiving a stream of anecdotal reports related to young peopleís experiences of racism in Scottish secondary schools. Working with the research consultancy EDI Scotland, this study was initiated to explore this question.
This Guide explains what Fearless is and answers all our most frequently asked questions, in a short, clear format which will support teaching staff to embed awareness of Fearless.org in their school community. It also includes our suite of Scotland specific artwork which can be requested to raise awareness of local crime issues.
Approaches to violence prevention have also developed apace over the same period, with increasing acknowledgement of some of the structural inequalities and inequities that shape meanings and experiences of violence. However, there is still work to be done. Whilst many neighbourhoods in Scotland have experienced an overall decline in crime, particular neighbourhoods and communities remain disproportionately affected.
This report seeks to consolidate existing research knowledge about violence in Scotland, broadly defined, drawing on a range of quantitative and qualitative sources. It is not a systematic review; rather it presents a more selective and convenience sampling approach to research that reflects key trends in both research and patterns of the phenomenon under review. The aim is to provide an accessible document that brings together relevant information about the state of violence and violence research, focusing on Scotland, but reflecting wider developments in understanding as a means to inform future research priorities.
The Scottish Government commissioned the report but has not exercised editorial control over the contents. The views expressed are entirely those of the authors.
A report on what matters most to young disabled people (aged 16-30) and their experiences and thoughts on youth activism and what issues they want to take action on in terms of their own activism.
Speak Up is a young person’s guide to intervening in a hate crime situation.
This resource is intended to help young people intervene in situations where someone is the target of hate behaviour. It introduces our approach to being an Active Bystander.
It is aimed at 11-16 year olds but could be used as a training tool for peer educators and youth workers.
