Chief Inspector Alastair Muir of the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit said:

“Building a life in a new country can be tough at times. It’s crucial that if issues do come up help is there to keep young people on the right track and making positive choices. Safe cities are created by engaged communities. ”

Launching the project in June 2018 the then Justice Secretary Michael Matheson said:

One Community Scotland is led by prominent campaigner Khadija Coll MBE, who has spent more than 25 years working in Scotland and Africa. Khadija explained:

“The champions are dedicated women who understand the challenges that young people can face building a future here. Scotland is a friendly country that has great opportunities, we want to make sure everyone can make the most of those opportunities and contribute to the success of the country.”
