Our vision is for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to be places where strong, healthy, diverse and vibrant communities flourish.

In living our values, we commit to celebrating diversity – valuing people from all different cultures, backgrounds and races for the uniqueness that makes everyone an important part of the community. We also promote equality of opportunity – understanding that some groups may face additional barriers and take steps to remove them. We acknowledge that many people with protected characteristics face discrimination and we will continue to do all we can to challenge this.

We pledge to fight racism and ‘Spread the Love’ – we are implementing our pledges and commit to making this a long term priority for CAN.
