The Community Cultural Connectors are group of enablers from diverse ethnic backgrounds that come together to provide information & awareness of their particular heritage to other organisations and individuals. They have been recruited from Manchester BME Network members or member organisations where there is a richness of diversity and wealth of knowledge.
They offer a different type of learning and sharing experience instead of the usual traditional method of training. The learning comes from experts with lived experiences and can offer informal conversational sessions to suit different audiences.
The project is in the process of developing community profiles that can be available more widely as toolkits. Our offer can be tailored to meet the needs of a variety of audiences and needs e.g we have delivered a Cultural Day to the School of Midwifery at the University of Manchester for their first year intake of students to support their Equality & Diversity curriculum for the last 3 years and a Diversity Day for a learning disability charity.
