About

We are currently not operational. 01/05/13

Black Voluntary Sector Network Wales (BVSNW) was formed 1997 as a direct result of the continual search by Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) groups and communities for a solution to the prejudice, discrimination and racism that they experienced.

Since its inception the organisation has moved on into embracing a more multi stranded and holistic approach to achieving its goals.

BVSNW is an umbrella, membership organisation that actively represents, supports and promotes the interests of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities and the BME Voluntary Sector in Wales. We also deliver front-line services to our membership and BME communities throughout Wales.

Objectives:

  • Raising awareness of the needs of the Black Voluntary Sector and BME communities.
  • Building the capacity of the Black Voluntary Sector.
  • Represent, support and campaign on behalf of BME voluntary organisations, community groups, volunteers and communities in Wales.
  • To play a strategic role in advocating the needs of BME communities within policy and strategy.
