Key topics being covered on the day are around knife/gun crime, gang culture, hate crime, unconscious bias, race relations, giving young people the tools to be good citizens and embracing diversity/culture.

A police spokesman said: "The aim of the day is to bring the community together.

"There will be a variety of public speakers, performances, stalls, sports and activities on the day.

"We want all organisations that support young people and the cemmunity to be part of this day."

If you are an organisation that wants to take part you can set up a stall and provide a service to the public.

This could be anything from a free service or activity like handing out useful information to selling goods or a service e.g. food.
