BEMIS (Black and Ethnic Minorities Infrastructure in Scotland)

As a strategic national infrastructure organisation, BEMIS aims to empower the diverse Ethnic Minority third sector. We are committed to promoting inclusion, democratic active citizenship, recognition of diversity, human rights education, and wider representation, as well as effecting a proactive role in maintaining and enhancing pathways to influence government policy at local, Scottish, UK and EU levels.

The role of BEMIS is to support organisations or individuals who:

  • are defined as being discriminated on grounds of race, culture, colour, language, and faith;

  • have a history of being excluded;

  • have difficulty in accessing mainstream services and the decision-making processes.

The core activities of BEMIS include capacity building, co-ordination and strategic influence, identifying and addressing areas for targeted support and development and partnership working. The core activities will be undertaken across Scotland by the dedicated team of project staffs with specific remits and specialist areas of work, but with the capacity to be flexible in our approach to maximise co-ordination and cross-fertilisation of areas of works.
