It’s only the colours of our scarves that make us different.
Colours of our Scarves is a Scottish Government funded project run by Supporters Direct Scotland tackling sectarianism and inequality in sport throughout Scotland.
Since 2013, Colours of our Scarves has covered a large area of Scottish football and worked with a number of stakeholders within the game to make it better for everyone. You can see a back catalogue of Colours of our Scarves work.
Now in it’s fourth year, Colours of our Scarves works with key stakeholders within Scottish sport to provide athletes, coaches, organisers and volunteers with a support mechanism, an educational tool and a opportunity for self-reflection and development with a focus on community impact and improving the learning and developmental environment for everyone involved.
The project consists of a variety of workshops, focus groups and mentoring schemes for sports participants, Sports coaches and organisers alike, with workshop and delivery projects tailored to the specific needs of the individual, club or association.
With continued funding in 2017-18, Supporters Direct Scotland will work in two main strands.
In partnership with the Scottish FA, Colours of our Scarves will build on work conducted with Braidhurst High School School of Football over the last two years. With this, the offer of a 2 hour delivery workshop for the players and coaches will be extended to the remaining 27 Schools of Football across Scotland.
Colours of our Scarves also works with educational institutions and students to deliver Equality Sport Festivals within communities, promoting messages of tolerance and acceptance of all.
