Building Bridges Pendle runs a linking programme in Pendle as part of the national linking programme. This video shows students from two secondary schools who have come together over the space of two months to design and deliver a community cohesion project.

This pack includes six sessions based around Schools Linking’s four key questions: Who am I? Who are we? Where do we live? and How do we all live together? The purpose of these lessons is to develop discussion around the concepts of identity, diversity, uniqueness and belonging. This set of lessons is just one way of exploring these discussions.
