Near Neighbours - Bringing People Together

Unity in Diversity

Near Neighbours brings people together in communities that are religiously and ethnically diverse, so that they can get to know each other better, build relationships of trust, and collaborate together on initiatives that improve the local community they live in.

Near Neighbours operates to two principle aims: social interaction and social action.

Social interaction is to develop positive relationships in multi-faith areas and help people from different faiths get to know and understand each other better.

Social action looks to encourage people of different faiths and of no faith to come together for initiatives that improve their local neighbourhood.

Near Neighbours BP

We are working with partners to target support on particular groups engaging with Faith networks in Nottingham. In parallel, we are developing hospitality spaces by expanding the number of Places of Welcome in the city specifically targeting areas of high numbers of ethnic minorities.

As part of our commitment to encourage coproduction in the City, we will be working on events with people in the Near Neighbours network to share ideas, gain information, receive support and participate in capacity building.
