PERN

Penrith and Eden Refugee Network

Welcoming Diversity

We want to find new ways to explore and celebrate the multi-cultural facets of Eden. People who live in Penrith and Eden have ethnic roots from all around the world. Many people in our community speak multiple languages, being in the enviable position of being bilingual or even trilingual. And businesses here have global supply chains; we eat food, buy goods and enjoy films from all around the world.


We look forward to engaging with more people and organisations in recognising the value of inclusion and diversity. We want to deepen our relationship with Anti-racist Cumbria and challenge ourselves to understand structural racism and to become anti-racist.


Join us in seeking to understand and affirm the best of that blending of nationalities and cultures. We welcome your ideas for sharing our differences and our similarities.
