Community Cohesion

While Derby is a city where people from different backgrounds get on well together, tensions sometimes arise between different groups and individuals.

Our vision for Derby is to make sure our city is one where people live together and respect each other and have a shared vision for their neighbourhood. This vision will focus on individual rights and responsibilities, encouraging trust and developing strong relationships that build on those things communities have in common. To deliver this vision, we have a Derby Community Cohesion Strategy supported by an action plan that focuses on:

  • Improving leadership
  • Empowering communities
  • Developing shared values and a sense of belonging
  • Monitoring and assessing tensions
  • Tackling inequalities
  • Preventing violent extremism
  • Supporting inter-faith initiatives
