The project will involve young people from British, EU, South Asian and indigenous communities in work around integration, diversity, equality (gender roles, sexism, racism), leadership, understanding British Values and resolving conflict. It will offer young people the chance to volunteer and become positive role models.
EU young people from emerging new communities are increasingly moving into the area bringing challenges to cohesion and exposure to CSE and other problems.
It will provide opportunities for individuals to connect with professionals, support networks, other young people and positive development opportunities to help develop the resilience, voice and strength of young people
We have established relationships with the relevant local authority, Police, health and safeguarding contacts who will be able to refer young people at risk to engage in the programme.
