Fife Centre for Equalities is supporting the Year of Young People 2018. This year, our Diversity Week Conference is dedicated to young Fifers who want to take the lead in challenging discrimination in all its forms.
We want Young people to have a greater say in decisions that affect their lives. This conference will provide a platform for young people to have their views heard and acted upon at local, national and UK levels.
The YOYP Equality Conference will take place during Diversity Week on Friday 7 September, from 1000-1400 in Town House, Kirkcaldy.
This event is by registration only as places are very limited and allocated individually across protected characteristics groups. Light lunch will be provided.
Contact us for more information or to register your interest. Please us ahead of any requirements (e.g. diet, BSL, translation, interpretation, etc).
