About us

The Cohesion and Integration Network exists to strengthen good relations across difference.

We want to connect and support the many inspiring individuals and organisations who are building a more integrated and less divided society.

We believe the sum of our connections, our relationships, our interdependence and shared humanity is greater than that which divides us.  We want to move beyond narratives of ‘us’ and ‘them’ towards a society where kindness, trust and social cohesion between groups is enhanced. And where tensions and differences are negotiated without harming underlying social bonds.

Our aim is to fundamentally transform policy and practice in this area – there has never been a better time, or a greater need.
