The Scottish Government money follows the publication of a report into the problem which was published last year.

About £860,000 has been pledged in the latest funding announcement, with almost half going to the Citizen's Theatre in Glasgow to host plays and workshops with school pupils as part of a project called Divided City.

Other groups to benefit include Deaf Connections to create online resources for deaf people, campaign group Nil By Mouth to work with schools, and Cambridge University to research and increase community engagement around anti- sectarianism projects.
