United Voices

To promote and influence anti-racist youth work practice in the youth work sector. To share practice and learning in supporting young people facing racism and antisemitism and to create a support network for youth workers engaging in this work.

This network has been created following the receipt of funding  from Corra Scotland to help support youth workers who are regularly working with young people facing racism and antisemitism. It will focus on what it is they need to best support their young people and also allow them a space to influence policy and strategy locally and nationally.



To achieve this the group will:

  1. Explore and share current best practice supporting young people facing racism and antisemitism.
  2. Identify ways to best support youth workers when engaging in anti-racist education.
  3. Identify areas of work that need specific support and promotion, such as youth work in schools.
  4. Influence policy and strategy from a lived experience perspective.


This group is open to all organisations in Scotland supporting young people facing racism and antisemitism. Practitioners attending the network can be staff members, youth workers, managers, volunteers or trustees of an organisation.
