We co-create community spaces in Halifax UK where everyone is welcome.
We celebrate our uniqueness and diversity. However you identify in terms of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, language, health or background, and whatever your financial situation, you are welcome here.
We strengthen our solidarity and togetherness. As we come together and create more connections between us and our communities, we grow stronger and more resilient in the face of adversity.
We will co-create a vibrant, diverse and resilient community in Halifax, where we support each other to thrive, show up in solidarity, and take action together towards the kind of world we want to live in.
We create spaces where people from different communities can meet, connect, become more of who we are, find support and share resources.
We work alongside St Augustine's Centre, Halifax Community Fridge, The Outback and others, linking our communities of support. We also welcome people who come to join us independently, or with friends.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Multiple challenges including the hostile immigration system and the cost of living crisis is hitting many of us hard. There are good support services in the city that can provide specialist support. We are a place for people who are not in crisis, but are looking for support and community to build the kind of life they want.
We run these events on a donation basis. You are welcome to come whether you have money or time to contribute or not. We would love to meet you.
WHO WE ARE:
We are a new CIC, started by people living in Halifax who want to do more to unite our communities, support each other in our challenges, celebrate our gifts, and strengthen connections. We feel alive and happy being in diverse groups. We know we are stronger together.
We are currently looking for a building to set up a home for our community. As we co-create together, we will evolve and grow, increasing our membership. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch.
MORE IN COMMON
We are also exploring joining the 'More In Common Network' - a network of groups around the country who share Jo Cox's belief that 'we have more in common than that which divides us'. Find out more at jocoxfoundation.org/moreincommon.
