Members’ Community Cohesion Group

A cross-party community cohesion group was set up in October 2014 to encourage awareness, debate, and engagement around any issues which could potentially affect community cohesion in Slough.

The group is made up of:

Community groups, charities, voluntary organisations and residents from across Slough have attended events to hear about key topics from:

  • helping children and young people to achieve their full potential
  • helping to keep each other safe
  • child sexual exploitation
  • tackling the threat from extremism
  • ‘Staying safe’ personal safety sessions
  • ‘Getting women more active’ - increase participation in physical activities
  • Positive parenting
  • Celebrations for International Women’s Day.

A statement from the group said:

“We are committed to working with our residents to strengthen community cohesion in the town and highlight what role communities can play as part of this work. Slough has a history of welcoming difference and we want to continue to build on that.”
