Nil By Mouth have today been awarded £74,755 by the Scottish Government to support our ‘Beyond Religion & Belief’ and ‘Champions for Change’ programmes. These programmes seek to raise awareness of sectarianism in schools, communities and workplaces across Scotland.

During 2013/15 Nil by Mouth worked with over 10,000 people through these programmes across 24 local authority areas.

This is the latest piece of good news for our charity in 2015 following on from founder Cara Henderson’s receiving the Evening Times ‘ Scotswoman of the Year’ award and being named as Scottish Women in Business ‘Charity of the Year’.  Next month the charity will host the first ever Tackling Sectarianism in the Workplace Conference in partnership with City of Edinburgh Council

 

Nil by Mouth Campaign Director Dave Scott said:

‘It can be a challenge finding the financial means to helps us keep our services free of charge to those that need it and this funding goes  a considerable way to ensuring that we can continue to run both our schools and workplace programmes. We appreciate the Government’s continued support for our work and we have seen huge progress on this issue over the last 15 years.  We are determined to play our part to ensure this continues.’
