About your organisation
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.
In many neighbourhoods across England, different faith and ethnic communities live and work next to each other, yet rarely interact with one another. Often these are also areas of deprivation, where people share a common concern for a better community, but don’t come together to talk or act as much as they could. Yet it is local people, in local communities, who are ideally placed to identify and develop solutions that can improve their own neighbourhood.
