Theme 1: Sustaining Our Communities
- An island society where we celebrate Bermuda’s diversity, promote social cohesion, provide equal rights for all, and care for the vulnerable who cannot care for themselves.
- An island where everyone can afford to put a roof over their head without having to work two jobs, where we invest in our youth as an asset, and have adequate systems to help and rehabilitate those that find themselves in trouble.
- An island where our growing numbers of seniors have security and our healthcare system ensures high quality treatment for everyone, no matter what their income.
Bermuda’s greatest resource is its people. Therefore, a cohesive and fair society is essential to Bermuda’s quality of life. Meeting residents’ social needs and helping the vulnerable should drive current and future social policies.
