Community Cohesion

Do something kind today... Love Your Neighbour.

The Love Your Neighbour campaign started in Birmingham but it belongs to all of us. The campaign recognises that over many generations people have made the UK their home and found they can belong here. But we cannot take our diversity for granted. It’s no use sharing a street or a suburb with people from different backgrounds if we don’t know them. It is no use sharing a street or a suburb with people from different backgrounds if we do not know them.

Loneliness is at epidemic levels, prejudice threatens to pull communities apart. We cannot love our neighbour if we do not know our neighbour, understand them, their culture and identity. We all need to build friendships that cement our society together, crossing differences that can become barriers such as age, social background, ethnicity, sexuality, gender and faith - working for peace alongside all people of goodwill.
