ACP YouthSupporting Community Aspirations

ACP has set up the East Birmingham Community Youth Forum to bring young people from different communities to promote community cohesion. East Birmingham is slowly becoming a segregated community. We have over 128 cultures currently living within Birmingham, however in these areas we often see that the community and youth don’t mix. This creates tension between the different cultures living in these areas creating youth gangs.
