First Citizens' Days to take place this month

This month four areas of England will be first to hold Citizens' Days, which aim to increase understanding of local communities and how they can facilitate change.

Citizens' Day will take place in Birmingham, Hull, Stoke-on-Trent and Southwark

In Hull the day will take place on 17 October. The other areas - Birmingham, Southwark and Stoke-onTrent - will celebrate it the next day, on 18 October.

Citizens' day is an opportunity for people of all backgrounds to come together to break down barriers, tackle prejudice and hate, value differences and celebrate what we have in common.

It is a chance for people to learn about what's on offer in their local communities, and that 'getting involved' means helping shape key decisions, improving neighbourhoods and making public services more accountable.

Citizens' Day is a Home Office Initiative, for which the Citizenship Foundation has been advisory partner.
