The next short Third Sector Leeds (TSL) workshop on 29 June 2017 will focus on community cohesion and resilience.
Community cohesion has been defined in many different ways but at its core it is about establishing shared values and building better relationships by bringing people together across cultural divides regardless of a person’s age, disability, gender, race, sexual orientation or religion / belief.
Resilience is a similarily contested term, but in this context we’ll be exploring how cohesive communities are more able to mobilise to provide support in times of crisis.
There will be opening presentation from the following colleagues at Leeds City Council:
- Shaid Mahmood – Chief Officer Communities
- Liz Jarmin – Head of Service, Communities and Environments
- Beverley Yearwood – Community Co-ordinator
Opening presentation from colleagues will cover
- Locality working review and the role the Third Sector can take in this work
- An update on the Council’s Breakthrough projects
- The Counter Extremism strategy
- Working together to ensure community cohesion and resilience.
There will be opportunities for third sector organisations to share information about work you are involved in and take part in discussions around how the sector works with partners to support community cohesion and resilience
