Through increasing understanding of each other we can build fairer and more inclusive communities. Over the past year, we have been working with Viewpoint Community Media to produce five short films that each focus on one of Swindon’s community groups, and how they are helping to build a town that works for everyone in it.
These films are now available to view via the Swindon Viewpoint website, with links to each available below.
In this first film, we hear from the Swindon Interfaith Group, on how people of different faiths have more in common than we sometimes might think.

In this fourth film in our series focusing on equality and inclusion, we hear from the Swindon Feminist Network about a range of issues affecting women, and why feminism is still needed today.
