About The Lokahi Foundation
As a diverse team we empathise and empower

Lokahi's diverse team of staff, trustees and fellows embody the essence of 'lokahi' - or creative harmony from diversity

Our expertise is as diverse as our team of core staff, trustees and fellows.

Lokahi’s work delves deep into the problems of a multicultural society and engages directly, with sensitivity, tact and understanding, with these difficult and uncomfortable topics.

Working across the UK and internationally, we carry out action research and analysis that informs the public and policy-makers and ultimately seeks to make a positive, long-lasting impact on communities.

As a team we empower diverse communities and society to be more stable and sustainable by encouraging people to find deeper shared values and identify a positive approach to mutual understanding and respect.
