Rice & Peas CIC is a community group established in 2022 dedicated to promoting and supporting inclusion, culture, and equality for all. The group is committed to creating a culturally inclusive Cornwall where everyone feels safe and welcome.
To further their mission, Rice & Peas CIC has used a Community Capacity Fund grant to employ consultants and development coaches to design and implement a comprehensive program consisting of 24 consultation sessions. The sessions were delivered in various community venues and explored the significance of cultural development and engagement within individual communities, bringing people together to discuss race, culture and inclusion.
The main objective of the project was to recruit cultural community ambassadors to be community leaders and represent a diverse range of races and cultures. Interacting with schools, educational establishments, and the community to raise awareness about the importance of embracing and believing in every individual regardless of their background.
As the project progresses, the final scope will be a Countywide ‘Ambassadors Celebrations Event.’ This event will serve as a platform for Ambassadors, parents, and leaders to come together and share their insights and experiences gained throughout the project, celebrating the success of the programme and the positive impact of cultural engagement.
Through the implementation of these initiatives, Rice & Peas CIC aims to create a Cornwall that not only embraces diversity but also celebrates it, creating a culturally inclusive Cornwall where everyone can thrive and feel a sense of belonging
