BME Workers Forum

Are you a Black and/or Ethnic Minority employee within the City of Edinburgh Council’s Health & Social Care or Children & Families?

The BME Workers Equality Forum is for you. Come and join us to make a difference.
We are involved in policy consultations with higher management.
We’re also here to offer support and advice to each other in the work place.

This year’s meetings are on:
Thursday 26th February 2pm-4pm at Waverley Court G22/C35
Thursday 28th may 2pm-4pm at Waverley Court C37
February 24th September 2pm-4pm at Waverley Court C37
Thursday 3rd December 2pm to 4pm at Waverley Court C37

We are here to support each other!

The BME Workers Equality Forum meets at least four times a year. Our group is open to all minority ethnic colleagues and foreign national colleagues. Attendance of all BME employees has been approved by Higher Management. If you are unsure if you fall into one of these groups and/or you have a particular interest in the group which you feel could contribute to the forum, please do not hesitate to contact a group member below to discuss you coming along.

BME Workers Equality Forum is a friendly group of professionals and front line staff who can offer a wide range of support and advice. Participants can also become involved in the consultation of council strategies, which may influence the implementation of new legislation and social work & social care practice. We have started to plan a yearly event open to all colleagues to raise awareness of issues affecting BME service users, students and/or colleagues.

If you would like to find out more please contact
Barry Fell on 529 6495 or
He can put you in touch with a forum member on your request.
However please feel free to come along to any of our meetings.
It would be great to meet you!
