Everybody Belongs Campaign

Everybody Belongs   1

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council launched a new innovative campaign that demonstrates its commitment to valuing each and every resident in the district. The #Everybody Belongs campaign was developed in line with the vision of the Council’s Good Relations Programme. It strives to oppose racism, sectarianism and discrimination against any of its residents irrespective of background, identity or ethnicity and ensure that everyone feels they belong in a district that is welcoming, shared and inclusive.

The campaign was officially launched by the Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Errol Thompson, who was the first citizen in the district to sign the Everybody Belongs pledge. This pledge of belonging clearly demonstrates that Fermanagh and Omagh District Council recognises that diversity and multiculturalism greatly enriches our society.

Everybody is encouraged to commit to the pledge and all public agencies, businesses and community organisations are invited to display the Everybody Belongs logo on their premises.  This is an opportunity to strengthen and diversify community networks and promote greater involvement of people of all backgrounds and ethnicities in the civic and public life of Fermanagh and Omagh District.
