What is Action on Sectarianism?

YouthLink Scotland, the National Agency for Youth Work has set up the first independent public website designed to challenge sectarianism in Scotland, supported by the Scottish Government.

Accessible on computers, tablets and mobile phones, this website will act as a central gateway to information and resources tackle sectarianism in Scotland by providing tailored user access to four distinct target groups:

Children and Young people

Adults: parents, carers, community groups

AoS Network: teachers, youth workers, academics, policy officers, community activists

Wren and Greyhound Limited were recently commissioned to evaluate the Tackling Sectarianism Programme from 2012 - 2016. Their report has now been published.

The report is an evaluation of the Tackling Sectarianism programme fund and took place between December 2016 and March 2017. Scottish Government launched the Tackling Sectarianism programme fund in 2012. Over the five years of the programme £12.5m has been committed to help build understanding of the nature, extent and impact of sectarianism in Scotland. Since 2012, 108 organisations have been funded to deliver 120 projects across Scotland. Scottish Government commissioned the Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) to act as grant administrators and provide development and capacity building support to funded organisations. The funding of community-based approaches was carried out alongside work undertaken by an independent national Advisory Group, who produced a series of reports and recommendations about the direction of the programme over the period 2012-2015.
