Glebe House is a residential and Day activity centre, owned by Harmony Community Trust, near Strangford in Northern Ireland. It was partly set up in 1975 by Irish and British members of Service Civil International. Since 1975 Harmony Community Trust has been practically and tenaciously working for a 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 their own identity, rather than conform to sectarian, national, ethnic or social stereotypes, myths or stigmas. Glebe House has held annual SCI International Workcamps since 1975.

Volunteers will be tidying and cleaning up the centre, helping to set up and run stalls and prepare activities for the Glebe House Annual Open Day; they will then help to clean up and put things away. There will also be some work on the Community Garden. Local volunteers will assist with all the activities.

It is also planned to hold informal sessions during the Workcamp on the following topics:The History and aims of Harmony Community Trust and Glebe House, a potted history of Ireland, The Northern Ireland peace process, and Northern Ireland's future. There will also be opportunities for volunteers to discuss other issues of relevance to themselves.
