The Greater Manchester BME Network project has been hosted at GMCVO since 2013, having originally started as part of a BASIS Big Lottery Funded project that ran from 2009-2012.
Its aim is to provide networking opportunities and better access to knowledge, information and support for black and minority ethnic (BME) and refugee VCSE sector organisations across Greater Manchester.
The Network holds regular meetings, working in partnership with Manchester BME Network. Pelase see below for details of upcoming meetings and presentations and papers from previous meetings.
Membership criteria for GM and Manchester BME Network, and criteria for attending the regular events can be found here.
Why are we hosting it?
There is a clear continuing correlation between ethnic minority communities and our most deprived neighbourhoods, and this inequality is reflected in our own sector. The Greater Manchester BME Network aims to redress some of the current inequalities in the VCSE sector by improving access to support services and providing networking opportunities for organisations who support BME communities, refugees and asylum seekers.
