Our idea is to empower local government and extend access to funding for projects, events and activities to bring together the local community and migrants. Central government does not have the local knowledge to effectively enhance region-specific tailored solution for community cohesion.
Initiatives can apply for funding local activities such as sports clubs, language classes, volunteering, local history events and family-oriented activities. This is in order to foster exchange between the local community and migrants.
We believe this will allow the local community to develop more interaction not only with migrants but also between other local community members, thus leading to the breakdown of stereotypes and fostering increased trust.
