Our Online Community

We offer an online community of practice for all those engaged in cohesion and integration.

All members have access to our Resources Centre containing over 100 resources on cohesion and integration, together with a bank of stories of inspiring individuals and organisations who are building stronger more integrated and inclusive places across the UK. You can put yourself on the Integration map and have your work featured in our Stories section. You can also access the directory of members in order to develop connections with others from different disciplines, areas and sectors.

Standard and Advanced Members can also join, host and moderate our online forums for areas of shared interest and to develop new thinking and ideas.

Belong is currently offering support to those who have a frontline facing role in supporting communities and neighbourhoods during the COVID-19 outbreak via our Communities of Practice. COPs will be facilitated and supported by members of the Belong team who have expertise in peacebuilding approaches, community development and community conflict management. This is a chance for you to connect with and learn from others facing similar challenges across the country. At the moment we have one community of practice open to members and non-members:

Using digital to build social connections and cohesion
At a time when we are all being told to practice social distancing this COP will develop innovative ideas for using online spaces and platforms to forge connections and relationships across difference. If you are interested in joining please email admin@belongnetwork.co.uk with ‘Digital COP’ in the title and we will send out joining instructions.

These forums are moderated by the Belong staff team and by member organisations who are hosting particular forums.
