The Patchwork Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that helps under-represented, deprived communities within British society to be heard by influential political figures and works towards a more understanding, unified Britain.

Mark Fallon, Chief Operating Officer at Lance Mason, one of the sponsors and speakers at the event commented:

“Lance Mason was privileged to be involved in the event. It gave us the opportunity, first hand, to see the great work that Patchwork carry out around the integration of minority groups from a political perspective."

“I was also pleased to illustrate how important embracing a diverse workforce is to Lance Mason and explain how diversity has benefited us a business.

The Deputy Prime Minister is regularly involved in Q&A sessions that reach out to under-represented groups of the community. When asked about his involvement in the evening Manchester MP John Leech commented: “I want to pay tribute to the Patchwork Foundation who put on a great event, and Nick who was on great form. There was no censorship. No subject was off limits. There was no handpicked audience. I’m not sure the other party leaders could have handled such an event the way Nick did.”

Videos of the speakers, as well as photographs of the evening, are available on The Patchwork Foundation website.
