About the BME forum

The purpose of the BME Forum is to seek to improve the experience and environment for BME people living and working in the Capital/Wales, providing a collective voice for BME individuals in Wales. By:

  • Strengthening  consultation with and between BME people and communities on issues  in order to enhance our ability to participate in decision-making and improve its effectiveness, and  ensure equal access to opportunities, and
  • Contributing to the development of culturally appropriate policies and services


The role of the forum is to provide an opportunity to discuss priorities for BME people and communities and develop strategies to improve the BME profile across the City/Wales.

  • To consider reports and developments on diversity and equal opportunities issues affecting BME people and communities
  • To help establish a programme of activities to celebrate and encourage respect for diversity
  • To enable members to seek, offer and provide mutual support
  • To link with decision makers and other networks and associations in Wales and the UK – including with the E&D representative on the Third Sector Partnership Council, Wales

The BME Forum is facilitated by C3SC in partnership with Race Equality First and Diverse Cymru.
