Building a Stronger Britain Together

In 2017 we were successful in securing funding from Building a Stronger Britain Together Fund, which is a Home Office led programme. This money will enable us to carry out essential community cohesion work.  Work for the project started in 2018.  Organisational objectives are:

  • to increase the sense of belonging for new arrivals to the area
  • to promote cultural understanding between different communities
  • to empower individuals to tackle and challenge extremist views
  • to reduce levels of isolation experienced by target groups.

Our project objectives are:

  • to encourage dialogue between different communities through various community events, e.g. bring and share, workshops and ‘meet your neighbour’ events
  • to equip key individuals within the community with the skills, knowledge and information needed to challenge extremist viewpoints
  • to give individuals a sense of identity and belonging through the provision of a befriending support scheme and ‘safe spaces’ such as coffee mornings.
