BAME HUB-UK NETWORK C.I.C

We’re Building a World Where All People Feel Safe and Valued

ABOUT US

We are Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) HUB-UK NETWORK C.I.C. a non-profit organisation for BAME communities living in the UK and their friends who are non BAME. We are a one-stop shop across the UK united under one umbrella, in our dedication to the BAME Communities’ empowerment. We are supporting people to foster unity and understanding between diverse cultures and to deal with issues arising from misunderstandings and systemic inequalities. BAME HUB-UK C.I.C can be used to act as a focal point in discuss and disseminating the issues that arise from the BAME community and the UK government as large.

OUR OBJECTIVES

  • To advance social cohesion and inclusion by reducing isolation and social exclusion.
  • To advocate for equality, diversity, and justice.
  • To improve access for marginalised BAME groups to social welfare and immigration, such as legal advice regarding immigration and asylum, housing, financial support, healthcare, education, provide care, support, refuge and sanctuary for victims of domestic abuse/violence support services
  • To provide children & youth empowerment programmes.

OUR STORY

We found that there are structural inequalities in health, education, crime, policing, and BAME experience post-migration living difficulties such as; racism, discrimination, hate crime, hostile immigration policies, cultural differences and language barriers, poor housing, lack of employment, poverty, etc. These factors may have directly or indirectly impacted the mental health and overall health well-being of BAME communities in one way or the other and are more likely to die from covid-19.

OUR MISSION AND VISION

Our Mission is to bridge the gap and improve communication between the UK mainstream and BAME communities.

Our vision is to empower and equip BAME communities and their families with skills to be self-sufficient that help them avoid pitfalls associated with lack of empowerment and/or information. This will improve their social standing by being more cohesive, socially, and economically within the British Society as they build their lives in the UK
