Somerset Diverse Communities

Beccy, our Community Engagement Worker, is on a mission to find all community groups run-by or supporting black and minority ethnic (BME) communities in Somerset. She’d like to speak to anyone involved in these groups – anything from a small meet-up to a fully registered charity or a faith group. It doesn’t really matter what you’re doing, she’d like to know about it!

We’re aiming to start a new conversation with people about the great things already happening in Somerset and find out what people would like to happen in the future. As part of this we’re involved with multicultural events and activities, helping community groups develop skills and source funding, and we also have some small-scale funding available. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more or have a chat to Beccy.

Somerset Diverse Communities aims to: 

  • Build relationships with and between groups who support BME communities in Somerset.
  • Help develop skills which facilitate the long term sustainability of BME community groups.
  • Help build unified, resilient and safe communities for all residents of Somerset.
  • Help create a more empowered, visible and vocal BME community within Somerset.
