London is one of the most diverse cities in the world, with many different nationalities, cultures and faiths. Over 300 languages are spoken in London and the city is a melting pot for so many cultures and it is vital that we have cohesive and empowered communities.
We organize various cohesion projects to encourage a sense of common belonging and cultural similarity.
We were proud to propose and deliver the first community cohesion conference held in the London borough of Haringey named 'One Community Many Voices'. The conference gave members of the public in particular, black and minority ethnic women and Muslim communities the chance to put questions to the Leader of the Council, their local Member of Parliament, the relevant portfolio holder for Communities and the local Police Service. Many of them had never had the opportunity to interface with key influencers and policy shapers in the Borough.
JAN Trust is a community cohesion champion. We were one of the few organisations to showcase our cohesion work at the recent Haringey Council cohesion conference.
