Community cohesion

Working with communities is at the heart of what we do, by strengthening our own relations with communities we will be able to better understand issues with cohesion and support people to overcome them. It is crucial that people get on well together, respect differences and work towards achieving shared goals. 40% of respondents to the "Your Priorities, Your Plan" survey felt that a greater sense of community would make them feel safer. We all have a responsibility to encourage inclusivity and build relations between communities which promotes wellbeing and strengthens our resilience to threats such as crime, terrorism and discontent.
