What We Do


Across Scotland Equality Councils are working to support and empower minority communities, particularly in relation to tackling prejudice & discrimination, and promoting community cohesion & connections.

SAREC delivers joined-up projects across Scotland, most recently relating to tackling prejudice and hate crime.

SAREC also aims to capture the reality and lived experience of minority communities in Scotland, and communicate this to policy-makers at a national level.
