Safer Wrexham Guide

Wrexham CBC are the lead LA for the Welsh Government Regional Community Cohesion programme, having been awarded 2 years funds for the continuation of the work of the Community Cohesion Co-ordinator in the delivery of the National Community Cohesion plan.

The Regional Community Cohesion programme of work will be delivered under the following themes: tension monitoring, community engagement and capacity building within the third sector, awareness rising through events, formal and informal training.

The programme of work will focus on enhancing collaborative work to address identified community cohesion issues surrounding Brexit tensions, Gypsies & Travelers, Asylum Seekers & Refugees, Modern Day Slavery, Disabilities and LGBT equality. The programme is reactive to community needs, and will also work to address wider community tension issues where community unrest or lack of cohesion has been identified.

Through the programme of work, a team of three Community Cohesion Officers was appointed with a coordinator to drive the programme. The team is actively working with each of the three local authorities, including Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire, providing a range of support to address the needs as identified within each area.

Current works include:

We believe it may be of value for us to meet to explore how we may be able to support each other’s programmes of work, whilst promoting and raising awareness of community cohesion.

For further information, please contact Regional Community Cohesion Coordinator Emily Reddy at emily.reddy@wrexham.gov.uk.
