The SFP Trust is delighted to announce new funding for Show Racism the Red Card Scotland. This is the third year we have provided support for the delivery of workshops to grassroots football clubs – allowing SRTRC the opportunity to educate young people and coaches with the knowledge to reject prejudiced attitudes and behaviour and empower them to become responsible citizens challenging racism.
The programme which is delivered in conjunction with ex-professional footballers including Derek Ferguson, Michael Weir, Gary McSwegan and Brian Irvine will see 30 sessions delivered to 10 grassroots clubs, benefitting over 1,000 participants.
Ruth McGeoch, Campaign Worker at SRTRC commented “The outcomes from the previous workshops have been impressive and are designed to encourage the youngsters to critically think about their behaviour and actions and how it can affect other people. We are most grateful to the SFP Trust for their continued support.”
We wish Show Racism the Red Card Scotland every success with this initiative in 2017/18.
