A STRONG & SOCIALLY INCLUSIVE SOCIETY
To support this we:-
build bridges within our community to reduce the level of segregation and disharmony,
create opportunities that foster social cohesion,
use a holistic approach to increase opportunities for social, cultural and economic inclusion and participation.
The result looks like:-
A strong, fair inclusive and engaged community,
A community where everyone understands and can exercise their rights and responsibilities, and
A community where people are able to access the resources, networks and support they need to realise their aspirations.
