You’ve made it to our website, and we’re really pleased you did! We are a new charity in Yeovil with a passion for equality and diversity. While we’re only small, we’ve got big plans to bring people together, break down barriers and foster tolerance and acceptance of differences. Our aim and motto is “Encouraging unity in Yeovil’s community”and this is at the heart of everything we do. Education is one of the best tools we have to help to reduce racism, homophobia, ableism and other forms of discrimination; building more inclusive societies.
Yeovil Diversity Project is about bringing people together to learn about and from each other, and to work together to benefit the wider community. We work towards this by amplifying voices of marginalised communities as well as creating safe spaces and platforms for those people to express their lived experiences, needs and hopes for the future. Our work to achieve this takes many forms; annual and monthly events, online and local campaigns, outreach programs, as well as working in collaboration with and supporting other local organisations whose aims are in line with our own. Have a look around to learn more about us and what we’re getting up to in our our first full year as a charity, and do get in touch if you have any questions, feedback or ideas you’d like to share.
Thanks for visiting!
