BME Workers Forum

BME Workers Forum may be for you!

The BME Workers Forum meets at least four times a year. Our group is open to all minority ethnic colleagues and foreign national colleagues. However, if you are unsure whether you fall into one of these groups and/or you have a particular interest in the group, which you feel would like to contribute to the forum, please do not hesitate to contact a group member below to discuss you coming along.

BME Workers Forum is a friendly group of professionals within Health & Social Care and Children and Families Services who can offer a wide range of support and advice. Participants can also become involved in the consultation on Council strategies and may influence the implementation of new legislation and social work and 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

Edinburgh’s Multi-agency Domestic Abuse Policy

Following extensive consultation, Edinburgh has adopted a Multi-Agency Domestic Abuse Policy. The policy has been adopted by the Edinburgh Partnership and all the national and local agencies that work in Edinburgh to tackle domestic abuse and wider forms of gender based violence.

Multi-Agency Domestic Abuse Policy for Edinburgh

What a beautiful summer we’re having! I hope you’re all enjoying it.

Attached below is a draft of the Multi-Agency Domestic Abuse Policy for Edinburgh, developed as a result of discussions at the Health & Wellbeing Committee policy development subgroup on domestic abuse. It outlines guiding principles and definitions in relation to the prevention of domestic abuse, supprot and protection for victims and management of perpetrators.

Anna Mitchell (anna.mitchell@edinburgh.gov.uk) is keen to hear any comments, queries or suggestions before the document is considered by the Chief Officers’ Group. Comments are due by Friday 30 August.

This is an excellent opportunity to have your say.
