Sharing the stories and experiences of the BAME community in Southend and working together towards better inclusion and diversity.

Following the success of Southend’s first BAME Listening Event in October, SAVS and Southend Healthwatch would like to invite you to a virtual event to continue to listen to the stories and experiences of the BAME community in Southend.

During the session, we will hear from more local BAME groups about their community, the work they have been doing during Covid and challenges they have faced. We will also be looking at arts and culture projects happening across Southend, as well as other opportunities for partnership working.

Aims of the session:

  • To showcase and celebrate the wonderful BAME communities in Southend
  • To discuss challenges and solutions during Covid and beyond
  • To provide an opportunity for partnership working and community support
