Inspirational Communities

Programme Information

Introducing cultural groups from within our community that maintain diverse connections through youth groups, church, sport, and schools and colleges. We celebrate how these groups share their cultures with the wider community and examine what gives them strength in their new country.  Inspirational Communities encourages discussion about the effects of the global pandemic on their particular communities and learn how they are able to cope with Covid-19, health, mental health, isolation and well-being projects, to enable their community to stay socially connected. The aim is for all cultures to support and understand each other through family, business and jobs. And of course, their association with this programme.
