Talking can be tricky especially if people have strong opinions and feelings. How do we talk about issues such as identity, immigration, belonging, extremisms and belief, in a way that doesn’t harm social relations?
At Talk for a Change we believe in the power of dialogue to bring about greater understanding, empathy and stronger relationships between different groups. Furthermore we believe it can strengthen the ‘social glue’, that sense of trust and understanding we all need in order to feel comfortable on our streets and in our neighbourhoods. We work across the UK and internationally supporting local people to talk about what matters, and building capacity to manage tension and change positively.
