Harmony Community Trust / Glebe House                     Developing Partnerships

This programme finished on Tuesday 30th September 2014
We would like to thank all those who have participated over the last few years,
community groups, adults, teenagers, children and the Glebe House Staff.


Glebe House will be running community relations programmes for Children, Youth and Adults funded by the North Down, Ards and Down Peace III Partnership.
The theme will be developing partnerships by building cross-community linkages with both adults and young people, developing leadership and positive sustainable relations for a diverse but shared future.
The Project will be developing the benefits and learning from the Projects we have run under Phase 1 & 2 of the Peace III programme, which have  melded into one programme with 2 strands, one involving adults and the other children, young people and their youth leaders. We will be concentrating on developing and consolidating genuine and sustainable cross-community partnerships in the cluster area.

We will be addressing the following issues which fall within the Terms of Reference of the Peace III Phase II Plan for the North Down, Ards and Down Cluster specifically sectarianism, racism, and other divisive attitudes, partnership working and sustainable cooperation through :-

  • Practical Good Relations and Diversity workshops geared to participants needs
  • Building positive relations through capacity raising and team building programmes
  • Conflict management and resolution
  • The promotion of volunteering
  • Encouraging and developing leadership potential amongst participants, both adults and young people.
  • Learning from history and different cultural, political and social traditions.
A project funded by the EU's PEACE III Programme

Glebe House is owned and run by Harmony Community Trust.
It is 3 miles from Strangford village in Co Down.

Glebe House is a unique and special place for people of all ages, from Ireland, north and south, and all over the world.

Since 1975 children, young people and adults have been coming to Glebe House for a week, two weeks, a weekend, or a day, to live together, play together, work together, learn together, and while we're at it discover that life can be more interesting, more rewarding, more creative, more adventurous, and more fun than the labels that get stuck on us.

We have been working for a peaceful, fair, inclusive society that respects and cherishes each person's humanity, dignity, aspirations, ideas and needs. One where each person can determine and re-create her or his own identity, rather than conform to sectarian, national, ethnic or social stereotypes, myths or stigmas. At Glebe House people of all ages create and renew friendships.
