My colleagu Rehana Minhas, Director for Equality and Entitlement, attended the Hamara Community Cohesion event this afternoon...

"Chris, I attended the event late this afternoon. The key note addresses were made by Hilary Benn MP, Simon Lee Vice Chancellor LMU, Local speakers included Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Dave Richmond, Mark Milsom from Holbeck Police. The event brought partners together to consider the achievements and the next steps for Hamara, based on the evaluation of their community cohesion activity conducted by LMU's Max Farrar and Jane South.

The Hamara community Cohesion Young People's award went to South Leeds High and Peace Jam got a mention. Together for Peace received an award for their work in South Leeds. The Walk Talk initiative won an award which went to the City Council. Have a lovely weekend. Rehana"

It is brilliant to know that Together for Peace and our work at South Leeds were recognised.
