Youth project seeks to build bridges across Rotherham communities

The Building Bridges project of Rotherham United Community Sports Trust is set to benefit from Safer Rotherham Partnership support, to bring together young people from different faiths and backgrounds. The funding is part of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s assistance to promote safer communities. Using film and arts, the project will give insight into what it is like to be growing up in Rotherham in 2016, including issues of vulnerability, racism, pride and self-identity. Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, was at Wingfield Academy to hear and speak to young children about community cohesion. Baillor Jalloh reports for Sheffield Live!
