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

NKSDG's Bridges & Barriers project completed Block 2. Great progress has been made taking the project to new school partnerships in Glasgow.

A further eleven Active Schools Coordinators are now on board now branching us out to the North East and also to the South to add to the two ASCs from the North West in Block 1.

This partnership work has made our project city-wide as hoped for. We also bought new bibs with the B&B logo on to help promotion.

Block 2 partnerships were: Bankhead and Corpus Christi; St Rochs and Royston; Whiteinch and St Pauls; and Golfhill and St Denis. The school MUGA pitch at Golfhill was our first outdoors session as neither school had an indoor option. 

Block 3 partnerships are: St Saviours and Riverside; St Patricks and Anderston; Avenue End and St Rose of Lima; and back to Bellcraig for another four-school partnership with the local schools this time focussing on P7s and four pupils from each school. 

Pupils from the whole project will have their schools invited to a Bridges & Barriers Football Festival to be arranged before the end of March providing us with an opportunity for a grand stand finish.
