 A Community in Motion was the brainchild of the head teachers in 4  primary schools in the East End of Glasgow, St Anne’s , St Thomas’s, Dalmarnock and St Michael’s. The school catchments cover a large area of Glasgow's East End  where inequality is a big issue for the community. 
 
The teachers recognised that some their young people were struggling to deal with issues affecting their communities and for some children violence, bullying and temptations such as gangs were getting in the way of their learning and attainment.
 
A Community in Motion involves the whole community working together to ensure the young people and their parents have the skills to ensure better quality life chances through the themes of Health, Happiness and Hope.

It's all about resilience
 
 
Over the coming years these schools, the teachers, pupils and the parents will work with partners such as The Scottish Violence Reduction Unit through their Mentors in Violence prevention programme, Re-Attachment, Medics against Violence, PEEK, Suzanne Zeedyk, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow and others to make a change.
 
 
This initiative will be built upon year on year as the children develop.  It will be developed into a programme that will begin at Primary 5, be continued through secondary school and into adulthood. 
 
 
These long term changes don't happen without support and central to this project is mentoring for the most vulnerable children and support for the parents through parents evenings and other events that help to make them part of the change.
