Funded by The Robertson Trust and the National Lottery community fund in Scotland, our A World of Difference resources will support youth workers and volunteers to better understand and deliver workshops on visible difference to their groups and communities.
The resources will help youth workers and volunteers talk about visible difference within their groups. Through greater awareness and understanding, groups and clubs can provide a welcoming and inclusive space for everyone.
Our workshop lead Beth talks with young people at the pilot in Greenock
The resources are made up of:
- A guide for youth workers and volunteers on how to run the workshops, which includes a template with advice on timing and details about activities and discussion topics.
- An optional PowerPoint to use with their groups.
To further support delivery of the workshops we have created an animation about unconscious bias and a 10-minute continuous professional development (CPD) training film:
- The unconscious bias animation asks youth workers to examine their own reactions to visible difference. It helps to reassure youth workers and volunteers that their initial reaction is outside of their control. Importantly these reactions can be channelled in a positive way, to create inclusive and supportive groups and organisations.
- The CPD film features two youth workers and a group of young people in Greenock who took part in the pilot. The film gives advice on running the workshop, potential pitfalls, safeguarding and hints and tips.
Our resources are designed to encourage reflection on the negative influence of stereotypes on the way we treat others

Information, discussion, and activities help youth groups and clubs explore the ways in which people are different and how to accept these differences. It’s important that all young people learn about difference and acceptance. By creating inclusive environments, we can create an inclusive society which welcomes and includes everyone and values difference.
