Community United launch the Belonging Project

Community United, West Berkshire’s leading ethnic communities advocate organisation, is holding a free online community forum on 16th September to launch the Belonging Project West Berkshire – and everyone is invited.

 

Community United is a not-for-profit non-partisan community-based organisation supporting communities of diverse cultures, ethnicity and religion who live and work in West Berkshire.  Its purpose is to bring communities together, to work to eliminate discrimination, to promote positive relationships between different communities, and to advocate for equal opportunities for all in West Berkshire.

The Belonging Project West Berkshire is a remarkable multimedia project that will showcase the individual stories of the richness of diverse cultures in West Berkshire through items of art and personal stories.  Participants will show a “memento” an item meaningful to them and the programme will explore “what drew them to live in West Berkshire”.

Guest speakers include Dr Deepak Ravindran, consultant at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, and Gulfraz Riaz, chairman of the National Asian Cricket Council.  Newbury MP Laura Farris will also address the forum.

This free online event is the inaugural event of the Belonging Project West Berkshire.  It is an unmissable opportunity for people living and/or working in West Berkshire to engage and take part by sharing their ideas, challenges and suggestions of how to enhance their experience of living in West Berkshire.
