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.
