The Racial Minority Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly

The Racial Minority VCS Assembly was developed to provide for real and meaningful representation of Racial Minority community organisations.  We seek to make sure that representation is not tokenistic and makes a real contribution to decisions on public policy priorities.


Set up initially to elect and empower racial minority representatives on the One Leicester Partnership (our local strategic partnership), the Assembly also provides a means for consultation and engagement with Leicester and Leicestershire’s racial minority communities for the whole public sector.


We currently have approximately 130 community organisations regularly taking part in our debates and discussions.  But there is always need for more groups and organisations to get involved.  If you would like to know more, contact The Race Equality Centre.


Leicester’s Racial Minority Community Groups call for fairness and equality in the allocation of resources. Click here to view report
