Faith and Belief Forum
Project Name: Walsall Community Recognition Awards
Walsall Community Recognition Awards will celebrate the vital work of local communities in making Walsall a welcoming place for people of all faiths, beliefs and cultures by bringing together local heroes and shining a light on their inspirational work. Walsall’s diverse and vibrant population powers a large number of voluntary organisations. Many of these organisations are local community projects which draw on their faith, belief and culture as motivation and inspiration for their community work. The experience in Walsall and across the UK shows that while some voluntary organisations work closely together across difference, other organisations work more independently within their own communities, and as such their work is often unrecognised. Walsall Community Awards will draw on our strong relationships with community groups and community leaders in Walsall to bring together volunteers from across these diverse organisations working on similar issues to celebrate their achievements and build new relationships across difference.
They hope individuals and community groups will share positive stories, their impact on marginalised groups and be encouraged by other groups to feel connected.
