Media Cultured CIC is a social enterprise that designs and delivers ‘identity and integration’ workshops to enhance social cohesion and counter radicalisation and racism in the UK.
Media Cultured CIC received funding from the PCC last year to deliver 10 workshops. A further application has been made to introduce and distribute the Media Cultured CIC product into a total of 10 local schools, academies and colleges within the Cleveland area.
A number of schools and colleges have already shown an interest in taking up the initiative along with referrals from Cleveland Police. The schools will be invited to attend a one-off training day that will be delivered by Media Cultured CIC. Upon successful completion of the training; attendees will receive education materials along with lesson plans.
The effect of this work will be to educate and support students and to help promote social cohesion by challenging racism, pathways to radicalisation and to promote the ‘shared values’ required to build strong and united communities.
This initiative supports the PCC’s objectives of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer and Securing the Future of our Communities.
