Overview

There are many community organisations across the UK who aim to serve ethnic minorities in their area. Some of these will be aimed at specific communities and others across several ethnic groups. Some are local and others across the UK.

Notes

Categorising organisations can be tricky as locations and scope can shift and we do not always know which languages may be covered by a specific network or organisation. This information can always be added as we go along, so is not set in stone and we invite organisational and network members to update this. Additionally some networks may choose to not be visible, especially if they work with certain hidden communities (e.g. undocumented migrants), so it is important to get permission before adding an organisation where this is the case (it is best practice to check as standard). If they are already quite active and visible online as part of wider networks then that is a good sign that they may be willing to be listed here.
