Cohesion Strategy

"The Strategy will be about how cohesion can be integrated with a community development approach, and how this can then enhance the regeneration of the Borough. It addresses how well do we get on with other people from different backgrounds in our neighbourhood, what can we do to foster a sense of community belonging and community identity in MK and what can we do to encourage positive relationships and manage community tensions. "

The main aim of the Cohesion Strategy is to build a common understanding of what cohesion means –not only for our local communities, neighbourhoods, groups and individuals, but also for our service providers, stakeholders and strategic partners. This can be achieved by establishing a high quality local knowledge base and a systemic approach to community cohesion.
