CEMAP – Coventry Community Voice Project

Coventry Ethnic Minority Action Partnership is currently working on a project looking at engaging members of the community to become more active citizens.

Today’s communities are more diverse than ever with many cultures becoming interconnected through the economy, government policies and general life.

Based on data captured from the 2011 Census it is apparent that Coventry has become more diverse in the last 10 years. The Coventry Community Voice project seeks to recognise the diversity of the city and increase these connections with communities leading to greater empowerment with more effective and positive outcomes for all concerned.

CEMAP are offering a variety of workshops to BME and New Communities which include:

  • Introduction to Active Citizenship
  • Civic Participation
  • Getting Involved: with the Council , Health Service, Police and Neighbourhood Forums.

The workshops will equip participants with skills to become a citizen who is an integral part of their community and can influence the decisions being made on their behalf.

If you would like further information or are interested in taking part in the project please contact Viv Brosnahan at v.brosnahan@cemap-coventry.org.uk
