Abstract

This report presents the findings of community mapping and research into community cohesion tensions in the City and County of Swansea (CCS). The research was commissioned by Swansea Community Cohesion Steering Group in October 2011. The primary aims of this research were to: provide an understanding of community cohesion work currently in existence in Swansea; explore the makeup of the communities in Swansea, reflecting demographics, social and cultural factors; identify key issues and areas of community tensions; and identify practical strategies for improving community cohesion in Swansea. The methodological approach adopted for the study had three phases. The first phase involved undertaking a scoping exercise to identify existing community cohesion work across the city via a pro forma which was sent out to a wide range of agencies working with local communities. The second phase involved the collation and review of existing data relating to different communities living in Swansea. The final phase involved collection of qualitative intelligence through consultation with key stakeholders and community members.
