Our Community cohesion describes the ability of all communities to function and grow in harmony together rather than in conflict.
Building communities where people feel confident that they belong and are comfortable mixing and interacting with others, particularly with people from different ethnic backgrounds or people of a different faith.
Viewed from outside, a cohesive community is one in which people will want to live and invest.
Our regular community cohesion activities provide positive and engaging activities so that users can feel a sense of belonging.
Connecting people with their wider community -offering services like community cooking, cinema together, community breakfast, cultural celebrations.
Provide opportunities for people from different backgrounds to get involved together and will go a long way in helping to break down barriers.
We use our everyday activity platform to share learning with each other about different beliefs and cultures.
Local Communities are warmly welcomed and involved in for instance, Eid and Christmas parties and Christmas Celebrations.
All our celebrations and events are all organised by our local community people along with our lovely volunteers. In this way we celebrate modern British values and an appreciation and respect for the diversity in our local community and in modern Britain.
