Councillor Rabnawaz Akbar, Executive Member Responsible for Community Cohesion, Manchester City Council

Manchester is a diverse, friendly, welcoming place that dares to be different, with a defining ‘can do’ attitude and community spirit. This is central to what makes the city unique, shapes our Mancunian identity and builds community cohesion. The city and its diverse communities are something to celebrate.  In Manchester we celebrate our differences but also come together to share what we all have in common; building mutual respect and a sense of belonging – Manchester is for everyone.
