Thematic Groups

How our members are involved in what we do

Our BME community members play a central role in decision making processes around policy, service development and delivery in Croydon by taking part in our thematic groups.  These are:

Community Safety: working with community safety agencies to address community safety issues and develop strategies to eliminate incidences of racial harassment and crime.

Education: works in partnership with schools, parents/guardians, local education statutory and community based education providers to improve education outcomes for BME children.

Enterprise & Employment: working with local statutory, voluntary and national organisations to address unemployment rates, pay and employment discrimination and improve work and enterprise opportunities for BME communities.

Health & Housing: to provide an opportunity for BME communities to have an input into addressing health, housing and wellbeing issues that will feed into future housing and health strategies.
