Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 7 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how it will structure safer communities and anti-sectarianism funding in the 2019-20 budget.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 15 November 2018

We are committed to the creation of a sectarian-free Scotland - a modern Scotland which is not weighed down by the prejudices of the past.

I can confirm that we will be presenting our spending plans for 2019-20 in due course.

Since 2012 we have invested an unprecedented total of £13.5 million in delivering a wide range of activities across a variety of formal and informal settings. This has included the development of Scotland’s first national education resource on tackling sectarianism.
