TRUE (Tackling Racism, Uniting Everyone) Colours is a group founded by young people, which is encouraged and supported by ELREC. Our objective is to challenge bullying and discrimination in Edinburgh. We want young people to have their voices heard and to promote a regime which addresses the important issues like bullying, discrimination, racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and gender equality. Our aim is to raise awareness of human rights, equality and diversity in schools and communities in the Edinburgh & Lothians area.
Our peer education programme is a way to educate and train children and young people. It’s aimed at tackling topical issues within schools today – namely bullying, prejudice and stereotypes. We firmly believe that young people learn more effectively from their peers. The programme workshops aim to raise awareness of these issues among primary and secondary school pupils. In the last two years, since its formation, our youth group TRUE Colours has been addressing inequality in schools across Edinburgh. We are always looking for new members. This is an opportunity for everyone interested in equality to gain the knowledge through training and workshops, and become a peer educator. It is also a great way to gain new skills, learn how to express yourself and make new friends.
