Diversity House was formally opened on the 16th of May 2007 with an office in Phoenix House, Central Avenue, Sittingbourne. A charitable organisation providing both community and prison-based services for diverse communities across Kent. The charity aims to promote community integration, re-integration, social inclusion and cohesion within the Swale and Kent communities. It is our belief that individuals, regardless of their race, ethnicity, age, gender etcetera, should be treated with dignity, respect and adequate opportunities to access services within the community. We believe that people should have opportunities, support and encouragement to exercise control over their own lives and acknowledge their responsibilities to themselves and to others.

Diversity House, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, has developed this intergenerational project in order to create greater social cohesion in Swale and give people a platform to pioneer interculturality and an appreciation for the cultures in the UK. Using the Benin Masks, on display at the British Museum, as an iconic emblem, our participatory researched project will encourage learning, documenting and celebrating the rich and diverse cultures of the Nigerian people and their relationship with the British (both pre – and post – colonial).

We are part of the UN global compact. "We are pleased to confirm that Diversity House Limited supports the ten principles of the UN Global Compact with respect to human right, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. With this commitment, we express our intent to advance these principles within our sphere of influence and will make a clear statement of this commitment of our stakeholders and the general public. We also pledge to take part in the activities of the UN Global Compact where appropriate and feasible – through for instance participation in Country/Local Networks involvement in specialised initiatives and work streams; engagement in partnership projects; and reviewing and providing commentary to participating companies on their communications on progress." - Christine Locke (Chair and project lead.)
