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

As part of the long standing Sense over Sectarianism Communities Utd programme many schools have worked together in partnership to take part in workshops, sports events and studies based on the novel study of “the Divided City”. These partnerships take place right across Glasgow and several adjoining local authorities.

The Communities Utd programme typically involves closely located denominational and a non-denominational schools and is targeted at primary 6 and 7 pupils with activities taking place in each partner school.

These programmes have nearly always involved 2 schools but in January and February 2018 there have been 2 separate programmes which have involved 3 schools and multiple classes.

The partnership between Sunnyside, St Rose of Lima and Avenueend Primary School’s has been delivered across all 3 venues and 6 classes and approximately 180 P6 and P7 pupils have taken part.

The partnership between Carntyne, St Thomas’ and Haghill Park Primary Schools has also been delivered across all 3 venues and 4 classes and approximately 100 pupils have taken part.

It has been a credit to the schools and their willingness to overcome logistical issues that have made all of this work possible. Clearly they see a high value in this style of education and the benefits it provides to their young people.
