Working in partnership towards an inclusive multi-cultural society based on equality and respect for all.
Forum Meetings (link to section in events):-
We host,facilitate or support a number of forum meetings that work to get communities together through their members in order to explore issues that concern them an find solutions to their concerns.
Hot Desks :-
Mosaic Centre for Diversity, Learning and Development based at Chute House will be hosting hot desking facilities for small and emerging community based groups who need infrastructure support to function effectively, grow and meet their objectives and want to network with other community groups.
Training and Facilitation :-
Please check Purple Booklet for more information.
Multicultural Forum can signpost you to various training provision in the borough and also create a bespoke package where one is not available elsewhere
Once we are up and running at The Mosaic, if there’s something on your mind that you want to talk about, or if you need some guidance on the best place to get help for a specific problem, come in and talk to us, Monday-Friday between 10am and 8pm. If you can call us first that would ensure staff or volunteers to be there for you when you arrive.
Our Pop-In service will be operational from the time of our launch of The Mosaic, based on feedback from people who use our services. The message people were giving us is that often, they just need to speak to someone, without having to wait, about the sort of things that affect us all at one point of another. If we can't help, we will know of those who can.
Moving to a new city and starting all over again can be a daunting and difficult experience, as can coming out to family and friends for the first time. If you have been feeling isolated, or want to get involved in new activities but don't know how to go about it or don't feel confident going along without a friendly face then pop-in or give us a call and we will get you in touch with a community of interest or a likeminded group.
Advice Surgeries :-
Advice surgeries are a vital part of what we are asked to do as an organisation; so we hope to provide a safe space for a range of advice surgeries provided by solicitors, police and others. Please do check back here to see any changes or new additions to our advice surgeries.
Online Advice :-

Organisational Mediation :-
For community groups and organisations that have governance or management differences that need resolving, mediation is a win-win conflict resolution method that is offered by the Multicultural Forum. Please contact us if you think your group could benefit.
