Society working since 1999

The new branch office of The Dialogue Society was officially opened recently with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by local residents, supporters, and the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Denise Cobb. The Dialogue Society has been working since 1999 to advance social cohesion, interconnectedness and greater understanding between people and communities in the UK.

Building trust and understanding

In her opening speech, the Mayor said: “Brighton is one of the most diverse places in the country and we know here that no two people are the same. However, we are often quite ignorant of the traditions, customs and lifestyles of those we come into contact with every day. There is an increasing need for initiatives that bring people together and build understanding and trust between people of different cultures, religions and ideologies."
