Community Action MK with MK Community Foundation have been supporting Fidele Mutwarasibo and a small group of individuals to explore ideas for a dedicated network/group to support the diverse and marginalised communities here in MK. This event will be a space to expand on initial discussions. We want to hear what BAME community members, groups and organisations are looking for within MK and key issues that need to be raised. It is also an opportunity to hear from some key organisations and the actions they are taking to support BAME residents, for example police, council, health etc. Involvement of the numerous BAME communities of MK is vital to the success of such a discussion. With views and lived experiences being the foundation of plans and future direction. It is clear that there are fundamental imbalances and inequality in accessing resources within the community and voluntary sector (indeed, wider society). This event is a step towards action and change by creating space to discuss, shape and design a solution to meet an unmet need in MK.

The virtual town hall event is on January 18th. The session will start at 5:30pm, prompt and will last no more than 90 minutes. Those interested in attending the virtual town hall event should register by email via info@mkcommunityfoundation.co.uk Please register your interest by the 14th January.
