A number of anti-discrimination projects operating in Angus have received grants from Holyrood to drive forward Scotland’s equality agenda in 2016-17.

These projects work with individuals, families, children and communities to address inequality and discrimination.

In total, 224 projects across Scotland benefitted from a share of a £20 million funding pot.

Equalities Secretary Angela Constance said: “Equality is part of the aspiration and ambition we have for Scotland. No one should be treated unfairly, suffer injustice or be denied opportunities because of their age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or sexual orientation.

“Amongst the 224 projects receiving funding support this year are frontline services which are working directly with communities to address local issues.”

Projects in our area receiving funding are: Action for Children Services - Tayside Women and Family Safety; Age Scotland - Men’s Sheds; Angus Women’s Aid - Angus MIA Service; Angus Women’s Aid - Angus Women’s Aid; Angus Women’s Aid - Children Services; Barnardo’s - Tayside Domestic Abuse Service.
