What we do

Voice4Change England is a national advocate for the Black and Minority Ethnic voluntary and community sector (BMS VCS) to strengthen the BME VCS to meet the needs of disadvantaged communities.



  • We influence Government policy through campaigns, consultations and briefings, promoting a policy making process that is inclusive of the BME VCS.
  • We conduct research to evidence the value of the BME VCS and the obstacles they face.
  • We influence policy makers through parliamentary events, party conference events and visits from MPs to frontline organisations.


  • We represent the BME VCS at decision making tables and provide platforms for the BME VCS to influence decision makers; these include events, publications and member blogs.
  • We provide expert advice and guidance on using the Compact to challenge public law decisions.
  • We broker relationships between the BME VCS and policy makers at events and through our growing online networks.
