Interfaith Scotland is the national interfaith organisation for Scotland.

We work to help ensure good relations between the diverse religion and belief communities of Scotland and also to share good practice in interfaith dialogue, education, engagement and training nationally and internationally.

Interfaith Scotland is a charity and we appreciate all donations, big or small.

Free, public anti-racism workshop. Learn to be a better ally.

Join Interfaith Scotland and The Anti-Racist Educator Collective as we look at what racism is and how we can take an active part in dismantling it. How do race and religion intersect? And what does good allyship actually mean?

Join the anti-racism workshop in Interfaith Week to explore these themes and to engage in safe and honest conversations about race.

To ensure the workshop has meaningful impact, we are limiting places to 20.

To register, please email Jamie Spurway on jamie@interfaithscotland.org with your name, organisation (if any) and any access needs.
