New Cohesion and Integration Network
SAVANNAH WISDOM IS PLEASED TO SUPPORT NEW COHESION AND INTEGRATION NETWORK (COIN) TO BUILD STRONGER COMMUNITIES
A new £7 million fund to support trailblazing approaches to building more integrated communities in England was launched in July this year by Secretary of State for Communities Rt. Hon James Brokenshire MP.
The Integrated Communities Innovation Fund will help tackle the key causes of poor integration set out in the Government’s Integrated Communities Strategy green paper which was launched in March 2018.
One such initiative also announced was a new Cohesion and Integration Network (COIN). Part supported by Savannah Wisdom, the new network will bring together organisations and individuals from across national and local government, business, and voluntary and community groups to share their ideas, knowledge and experience.
Ted Cantle a trustee of the new network, said:
“The Cohesion and Integration Network announced today is a great opportunity to boost integration across the country and ensure that proven ideas and projects can be easily shared replicated elsewhere and not re-invented or lost altogether.”
“We will be developing toolkits and guidance and making these resources accessible to everybody and as well as investing in skills and training to build the capacity of communities.”
