How can we use people, and local assets to make Wolverhampton a better place?

One of the things that makes Wolverhampton special is the variety of cultures and nationalities it is home to. Is this reflects in the shops and produce on offer, or the community services that are provided?we could create a market place that has produce from all around the world, encouraging residents to try different things and increase understanding between cultures. Recipes could be traded, and advice given. This could also be used as a front to promote community services relevant to different groups, and raise awareness. By people being able to access these services via the social enterprises, it would reduce stigma or fear of being seen, as anyone passing by would not know if they were going in to purchase something or for advice. It would also mean that community languages would be prevalent, removing another barrier individuals may have when accessing support and advice services.
