Draft LCC Cohesion and Integration Strategy 2024/28

The Cohesion and Integration 2024/28 Strategy sets out how together we can develop stronger and more cohesive communities where communities can flourish, feel they belong and build a fairer and more inclusive County. We have aligned our key priorities to that of LCC's corporate priorities, our approach will focus on how we can build alliances to tackle inequalities and develop community cohesion and integration by working with existing partnerships, services, and various relevant communities. Please note cohesion and integration is highly complex and sensitive area, this strategy has been devised and developed over a long period via various consultative and engagement processes.

Our three-pronged approach will be to collaborate and add value to existing partnerships, our current services and build trust with communities. We aim to strategically tackle local issues collectively, and address the diverse challenges faced by the communities by collaborating with the districts, other public sector partners, voluntary community faith and social enterprise (VCFSE), businesses and any other key stakeholders. Our focus will be to ensure that we help promote cohesion with emerging as well as existing communities, deprived communities and hard to reach communities.
