Policy and research seminar: BAME communities and volunteering

Volunteering Englandand Voice4Change Englandare pleased to invite you to a policy and research seminar on BAME communities and volunteering.

Volunteering takes place in all areas of our society, but sometimes there are barriers to different groups working together. In particular, members of black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups may experience barriers to volunteering outside of their own community.

Volunteering Englandand Voice4Change Englandare pleased to invite you to a policy and research seminar on BAME communities and volunteering.

Volunteering takes place in all areas of our society, but sometimes there are barriers to different groups working together. In particular, members of black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups may experience barriers to volunteering outside of their own community.

At this event, Steve Moreton, Head of Education and Development at Attend, will present the findings of recent research, undertaken as part of the European Year of Volunteering 2011, on barriers and solutions to BAME communities being included in volunteering. Eddie Chan, Director of the Chinese National Healthy Living Centre, will then speak about his organisation’s experience of engaging, supporting, involving and retaining volunteers.

The event will encourage policy and management practitioners involved in developing good practice in involving BAME communities in volunteering to develop practical ideas for action. It will also identify issues for further research.Delegates will benefit from being involved in the development of the latest thinking on this issue, networking and the sharing of good practice.

The seminar will take place on Thursday 26 April, from 2.30pm to 5pm, at the Chinese National Healthy Living Centre, 29-30 Soho Square, London W1D 3QS. If you would like to attend, please register at http://bamecommunitiesandvolunteering.eventbrite.com.
