Provision to deliver equality through sport workshops

Our equality through sport ‘Colours of our Scarves’ project is back!

We have provision to deliver 30 workshops to sports clubs across the country absolutely free.

Our interactive and engaging workshops are designed to provide those with a responsibility for the provision of sport with:

  • An up-to-date understanding of the prevalence of hate behaviours in Scottish sport
  • More confidence to challenge hate behaviour if/when it happens
  • An understanding as to the potential consequences of hate behaviours in both sport and wider society.

Nicola Sturrock, Football Development Manager at Spartans FC: “I’ve attended the Colours of our Scarves workshop a few times now and find it extremely beneficial and informative. It has been a great CPD tool for our developing coaches, increasing their confidence in spotting and challenging hate behaviours”.

The workshops can be delivered online or in person.

To book your workshop, simply email andrew@thefairplayfoundation.org to organise a time and date convenient for your club.
