St Philip's Centre
Learning about good community relations in South Asian heritage faith communities

Oct 2023
There have been tensions in Leicester between members of different communities during the past eighteen months. Staff at the St Philip’s Centre have been working with a wide range of community groups and individuals to develop a clearer understanding of the issues and enable people of differing perspectives to encounter each other in a safe and supportive environment.

Thanks to funding from Westhill, we will develop this work further through a focused study day.

We will hear in turn Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, and Christian perspectives on the situation in Leicester and the wider geopolitical context, before facilitating a reflective discussion amongst those participating in the study day as to how to maintain strong community relations.

We want the voices of ordinary people to be heard.

The hope is that through piloting a day focused on understanding the experience and perspectives of those with a grass roots understanding of the issues, we can equip people of influence to make more informed decisions as to how to best respond to the ongoing tensions.
