Black and Minority Ethnic Network

Our trust wide Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Network group looks at our performance in relation to race equality.

The group acts as a staff consultancy group for the Trust, but also has the ability to look at other areas of race equality that may not be covered by the Diversity work plan.

Issues that are covered by the group include:

  • Equality Impact Assessments
  • Ethnicity data collection on employment
  • Ethnicity date related to complaints and disciplinary action
  • Support and signposting for BME staff and service users.


The BME Network group meets throughout the year. Any Trust employee who is black or from a minority ethnic group is welcome to attend the meetings, as well as anyone else who subscribes to the aims of the BME staff group.

There is a core group of six to eight elected members who provide leadership and direction for the group, and a general group.
