Our vision is for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to be places where strong, healthy, diverse and vibrant communities flourish.

In living our values, we commit to celebrating diversity – valuing people from all different cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities for the uniqueness that makes everyone an important part of the community. We also promote equality of opportunity – understanding that some people may face additional barriers and take steps to remove them. We acknowledge that many people with protected characteristics face discrimination and we will continue to do all we can to challenge this.

We pledge to fight racism and #SpreadThe Love – see Our pledge to support prejudice-free communities (pdf)

We are implementing our pledges and commit to making this a long term priority for CAN.

Here is a short video of our vice-chair Martin talking about prejudice-free communities and what it means to him and to CAN …

Together we CAN make a difference
