Together For Peace
Who we are
Together for Peace (T4P) is a small charity with a big vision and big reach. Its deliberately small team work with a wide range of people across Leeds and beyond – to develop and support cooperative projects that strengthen communities, deepen inter-cultural understanding, and promote peace-making in all aspects of life and society.
Every piece of work we do is in partnership with others. We enable people to make connections around shared values, then help turn visions and ideas into positive action. Working from grassroots to government, we catalyse initiatives, broker partnerships, and co-host a range of dialogue, learning and creative events.
In this way, T4P has - since founding in 2002, and launching publicly in 2003 - co-developed 180+ projects and events, including… the Leeds Active Citizens community leadership programme; the Jewish-Muslim dialogue project, including a joint trip to Palestine and Israel; the 'Leeds Poverty Challenge'; the Planet Leeds street festivals and events; the ‘In One City’ programme of films; the Leeds Summat gatherings; city-wide arts events and exhibitions on big issues; a range of cross-community development and dialogue programmes; the Leeds to London WALKTALK cross-community dialogue initiative; schools work; and more.
T4P also acts as an incubator for others to develop work alongside us, such as the Inter-Active inter-community sports and dialogue project. (Full info on all this is on our website.)
We’ve received various awards, including: the Leeds City Council Partner of the Year awards 2012; the Institute for Community Cohesion’s Awards for Bridging Culture (small charities category) 2010 (www.cohesioninstitute.org.uk); and Community Cohesion Organisation of the Year 2008 and 2010, from the prominent local Hamara Centre (www.hamara.org.uk).
