The Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) voluntary and community sector (VCS) is hugely diverse and this section aims to bring together resources and information for the BME VCS. There is no one definition of a black and minority ethnic voluntary and community organisation (BME VCO). The BME voluntary and community sector is hugely diverse and whilst some organisations are quite clearly a part of the BME voluntary and community sector (like those delivering services to a targeted community), others sit more on the margin.

For some leadership and self determination is a defining factor, for others it is the drive to work with parts of the BME community suffering deprivation, exclusion and poverty. Some add it is not only who they work with but how they work with them.

BME youth unemployment

The Work and Pensions Select Committee has called on the government to assess how effective its youth unemployment programme has been in getting BME young people into work.


Equality Act Toolkit

The Equality Act Toolkit, a resource for the BAME Community Sector, produced by the Roots Research Centre, in collaboration with the 1990 Trust, has been designed to help VCS organisations use the Equality Act 2010 to challenge discrimination and promote equality.
