Inclusion & Cohesion Overview

Our inclusion department works with the diverse and vibrant communities of Rotherham with the overall goal to make Rotherham a more inclusive and cohesive society.

Although community needs will change over time our work and current projects aim to:

  • Reduce Antisocial behaviour, violence and crime
  • Contribute to a more cohesive community
  • Enhance both physical and mental wellbeing and contribute to suicide prevention
  • Be inclusive of the most underrepresented groups in sport (Disability, BME, Women & LGBTQ)
