SCSN has historically not been a campaigning organisation in the past, but we do regularly support campaigns run by our partners.
Recently, we have joined with some of our partners in co-producing some campaigns. You can find information about these campaigns on this page.
Annual Fearless campaign on Hate Crime for Holocaust Memorial Day
SCSN were delighted to support the annual Fearless campaign against Hate Crime for Holocaust Memorial Day.
Any crime which is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated (entirely or partly) by malice or ill will towards a social group.
There are five groups or protected characteristics covered by the hate crime legislation.
- Religion or belief
- Sexual Orientation
- Transgender Identity.
Victims may be subjected to physical assaults or suffer damage to their property. They may also experience the threat of an attack or verbal abuse.
Hate crime can happen anywhere – at school, at the football, in the street or even at home.
If you know who is responsible for hate crime – click here – to tell us what you know, 100% anonymously.
Led by the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA), this multi agency campaign, of which SCSN are proud members, aims to raise awareness of the impact fireworks can have on people and animals, as well as how to use fireworks safely.
Fearless.org – the youth service of independent charity Crimestoppers – and the Scottish Community Safety Network (SCSN) are this week working in partnership to encourage young people to learn more about anti-social behaviour and how best to make their communities safer.
