Despite only being created in 2015. The charity receives high level support across the political spectrum and is already well established in Scottish civic society.
Remembering Srebrenica [Scotland] is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) No SCO46540.
In July 2015, Scotland marked the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide with a large service within St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh, attended by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP. At this service the First Minister met the Mothers of Srebrenica and pledged to visit them in Bosnia. In August 2016 she fulfilled that promise and visited the Potocari Cemetery further raising the profile of the charity and its work.
The Scottish Board identified the need to become a separate charity in Scotland and created Remembering Srebrenica (Scotland) a sister charity to the Birmingham based organisation.

Mothering Sunday in Potačari, having lunch with some of the Mothers of Srebrenica. These images from @SrebrenicaMC convey their courage, their grief and their dignity. And, in their fight for justice for their loved ones, they are all of our mothers. #Srebrenica0323 🏴🇧🇦4

Majority of you won’t know that out with my time as Vice President Communities, I’ve worked with @RemSrebScot over the last couple years. This weekend I’ve been honoured to be part of a delegation to Sarajevo to learn about the Bosnian war and the Srebrenica genocide
