    About the host organisation

    Hosted by: Diversity Matters North West
    Organisation Profile:

    DMNW is an award winning independent local charity, set up in 2007 as Hyde Community Action to combat health inequalities, social exclusion and promote community cohesion. Based at the Healthy Living Centre in Hyde, we host and co-ordinate regular activities and training for the local community, with the help of our volunteers.

    DMNW exists to help people develop their potential and support each other, striving to empower the people we work with, individually and collectively, by encouraging them to build with confidence on the skills and knowledge that they already have. We aim to:
    * Tackle issues that impact on people's health and well-being through listening to views of the people that we serve, being informed and led by their expressed needs.
    * Provide targeted support for disadvantaged and excluded groups: being sensitive towards faith and culture, although we will normally undertake work that is faith-specific.
    * Promote improved community cohesion.
