S.L.A.T.E Charity’s logo was created for us by Tony Traynor of  Design and Flexo Ltd in East Kilbride and uses a typically Scottish / Highland / Gaelic font - to emphasise that although we are a UK based Charity, we work primarily from Scotland.

The thistle re-iterates Scotland.

The letter t is sword or weapon shaped to symbolise our fight against poverty - Poverty in knowledge poverty - in material goods and poverty - in the loss of senses.

The reversed letter E expressed in this fashion makes us remember our Russian / Cyrillic commitment - even that we know such a letter does not exist in either English or Cyrillic.

The missing full stop after the reversed E is to remind us that there is no finality in the fight against poverty.

The middle letter A on an old fashioned writing slate sums up what we are about - at the heart of our campaigns - education and knowledge can fight the battle against all kinds of poverty.

Colour scheme of blue and white to mirror the saltire - Our flag.

We decided to include our website address, as this is an excellent route to contemporary sources of information.


S.L.A.T.E Charity is a UK based Charity, working primarily in Scotland. Our principal objectives are to inform and educate young Russian people. Some of these young people are university students where as others are more disadvantaged and live in street environments where they are cared for in shelters. In recent years we have also adopted an interest in  a school for blind and partially sighted children, the poetically named School 139.

One of our main objectives is to educate and improve the health of young people through the promotion of good and safe sexual health practices.
