Gateshead Diversity Forum

 

The Gateshead Diversity Forum is open to any Black and Minority Ethnic community groups, individuals and organisations who are working to benefit the lives of local Black and Minority Ethnic people.

The Diversity Forum aims to provide a formal way of consulting with Black and Minority Ethnic groups and individuals and to identify and address issues, which impact upon the local Black and Minority Ethnic population. The Forum discusses a wide range of issues including education, community safety, health, housing, employment practices and service delivery.

The Diversity Forum's main focus is on the following areas:

  • Improving communication and understanding between the various Black and Minority Ethnic groups operating in the borough and the Council
  • Improving communication and understanding between hard to reach sections of the Black and Minority Ethnic population including women and young people and the Council
