Event description

Description

Real People Honest Talk is a community engagement programme run by Near Neighbours. It brings together people in the areas of high ethnic and religious diversity for conversations over food about what it means to live together well, our hopes and worries for our community and how we can work together to make our neighbourhoods better, safer and more connected.

For three months we have organised a series of 12 small conversations across Waltham Forest to build new local relationships and develop ideas for collective actions and future involvement among neighbours. These conversations have given a wide range of people from within our communities the opportunity to talk about many of the tough issues they face every day. The conversations covered the areas of Walthamstow, Layton and Leytonstone and engaged over a hundred people in conversations.

INVITATION

We would now like to bring local agencies and other stakeholders together to build on these conversations and to give you the opportunity to hear the voices of these Real People. As part of our Big Conversation you will hear directly from those who have been a part of Real People Honest Talk and we are sure you will be moved and challenged by what they have to say. The event is an opportunity to share ideas and to build on the valuable contributions made by participating groups.

Bringing together different faith groups and ethnicities, this special event will celebrate the diversity and resilience of local people and give encouragement to community groups who work and live in Waltham Forest directly affected by policy and decision making.

Big Conversation is also an opportunity to meet and learn about the groups and organisations currently supported and funded by the Near Neighbours Programme.
