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
