Voice4Change England is a national advocate for the Black and Minority Ethnic voluntary and community sector (BMS VCS).

A stronger and inclusive civil society to meet the needs of BME and other disadvantaged communities.

To strengthen the BME VCS to meet the needs of disadvantaged communities.

As the only national membership organisation dedicated to the BME VCS we speak up to policymakers on the issues that matter to the sector, bring the sector together to share good practice and develop the sector to better meet the needs of communities.


  1. Increase the involvement of the BME VCS in decision making
  2. Increase awareness of the BME VCS’ impact and value
  3. Improve the capacity of VCOs to meet the needs of BME and other disadvantaged communities

BME voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) are a crucial part of civil society.  By supporting the BME VCS we aim to improve the life outcomes for BME and other disadvantaged communities.
