Real People Honest Talk in Leeds

Real People, Honest Talk is a project designed to bring people of different cultures and backgrounds in a community together to honestly and openly discuss real issues that are affecting them in their community. Run by Near Neighbours, the project has earlier this year come to Bradford and recently come to Leeds.

There were four groups representing different areas of Leeds which met several times before the Big Conversation event to discuss issues relating to themselves and their local area.

Issues raised by the groups included but is not limited to conversations around racism in the community and schools, education and trying to support today’s children to be tomorrow’s leadership, mental health and particularly that of men and issues around Immigration and Refugees being inaccurately or unfairly portrayed in the media.
