The Greater Manchester BME Network provides networking events, training opportunities and improves access to infrastructure support available for Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) voluntary and community organisations across Greater Manchester. Greater Manchester is made up of ten districts: Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan. For more information on support services available at a local level check out our Districts page.
Greater Manchester BME Network successfully completed its 3 year BASIS II Big Lottery funded project in July 2012 and has just finished its 4th year of delivery with funding from the Big Lottery Fund’s Supporting Impact Fund with the added support of being hosted at GMCVO. During it’s 4th year the GM BME Network project delivered on two key Outcomes of the previous three years of work, the Organisational Improvement Programme (OIP) and the Greater Manchester BME Network (GMBMEN).
Going forward, we will continue to hold various themed events and training relevant to BME organisations. Keep a look out for sessions that might interest you on this website. You can also access resources from previous our events and training sessions through the Past Events page.
