Due to technical difficulties enabling online conferencing, and new Covid-19 restrictions disabling larger physical meetings, this event has been reduced to just six people. Those registered will be informed of an alternative date and arrangement for a larger scale Weaving Trust event in due course.
‘WEAVING TRUST’ BETWEEN BAME & MK POLICE’
This Weaving Trust event will help BAME communities and MK Police to build trust with one another. It is hoped this will lead to new opportunities for understanding, collaboration and perhaps action to improve the way things are.
What will happen?
6.30 Welcome from Phil Shamamba of MK Congolese Community and Supt Marc Tarbit of MK Police, with two short stories of ‘why I am here’
6.40 8-10 people from BAME communities meet with 8-10 MK Police officers and staff in a carousel of one-to-one conversations about ‘what I like about living/working in MK and what I find difficult’
7.40 Share ‘surprises in what you heard’ (these are recorded)
7.55 Set up small group to meet 6.30pm on Monday 22nd September to develop priority issues for potential action. Everyone write in Zoom Chat one action s/he will take as a result of this evening’s Weaving Trust event.
It is hoped that all participants will enjoy this event and feel more confident relating to MK people they don’t know and some will go away ready to take action to improve relations between BAME communities and MK Police.
