The Patchwork Foundation aims to promote and encourage the positive integration of under-represented, deprived and minority communities into British democracy and civil society.
Patchwork is a craft that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design.
The various communities in Britain are a diverse mosaic of people from different cultures, faiths, ethnicities and social backgrounds. Once they are ‘sewed’ together, these diverse communities contribute in a cohesive manner to the multifaceted whole.
The Patchwork Foundation seeks to facilitate a positive interaction for under-represented, deprived and minority communities in British society, empowering citizens to play a role in the social and political arenas.
“Patchwork Foundation’s mission is to promote, encourage and support the active participation of young people from under-represented, deprived and minority communities in British democracy and civil society.”
The Patchwork Foundation is not affiliated with any political party and does not promote a particular political view. It does, however, work on the promotion of mainstream political and social participation and works with the main political parties and democratic institutions to support this agenda.
