We empower people to make a positive difference to themselves, their families, friendship circles and wider communities.
We celebrate the diversity of British society. Our programmes reflect this and where necessary challenge discrimination.
Diversity Hub’s vision is of a society where we all recognise our capacity and responsibility to be leaders, wherever we are, and have the confidence and insight to act in the interest of ourselves and others.
Through our programmes for young people and adults, groups and individuals, we accompany people on journeys of discovery – about themselves, about each other and about different, better ways of working together. These are experiential journeys, taken together.
“The first Friends Against Bullying (FAB) workshop I attended pretty much changed my life. When I moved to secondary school, I became a bully to feel powerful and ‘in control’. But the workshop made me realise I’m a completely powerful person being myself. I then set up a FAB team and became a positive role model to the other students. It’s thanks to Diversity Hub I’ve been able to perform many little miracles in my own and other people’s lives!” Ashleigh
We have big ambitions. For more than 20 years, we have worked with people in Leicester and further afield to celebrate our diversity, to challenge everyday prejudice and to strengthen community cohesion. Above all, we aim to empower everyone we work with to fulfil their potential in a fair, respectful and confident society.
Our success has been recognised in many regional and national awards, including the Investing in Social Change Award from the Directory of Social Change and the Young Partners Award from The National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (2009).
“When I started out as a volunteer with Diversity Hub, I feared no one would want to hear what I had to say. But the programmes I’ve worked on have taught me about the stereotypes that hold me back. They’ve also made me more open-minded towards others. Now I run Rising Asian Women to encourage other Asian females to come out of their shells. Why shouldn’t we talk a bit more?” Fatima
