BME Network

Our BME Network comprises over 120 community stakeholders in Lewisham and beyond. The Network brings together community groups, statutory organisations, and local businesses and individuals to build a stronger community in the borough. 

The Network meets monthly for a morning meeting on the last Thursday of every month. We also share updates, development and funding opportunities, networking events and other usual opportunities to our network members via email. To be included in this mailing list please email with ‘BME Network Member Enquiry’ in the subject line.

Through the BME network we:

  • Provide a forum for exchange of ideas, sharing of skills and resources, and co-ordination across community organisations
  • Help communities to develop a strong voice in decision making and to work with public bodies and partner organisations to improve how services are run
  • Help organisations to develop their thinking, skills and infrastructure to maximise their impact
