2019 has been designated UNISON’s Year of the Young Worker and we are working with Show Racism the Red Card to deliver our Young Ambassador Programme.

The course is open to all young members and runs for one day per week for 6 weeks from Tuesday 8 October until Saturday the 16 November. The course aims to take participants on a journey from challenging the myths around immigration and Islam to tackling racism and hate crime. Participants will be encouraged to build a political alternative to the undercurrent of hate through our political school at Redhills Miner’s Hall in Durham.
