BSWN is a regional infrastructure organisation that supports BME and other marginal community organisations in the South West. Its vision and mission are to promote and advocate on behalf of the BME and other marginal Voluntary and Community Sector organisation (BVCS).
To strengthen the BVCS in the region by increasing its influence in policy arenas, developing the capacity of the BVCS, providing support, and facilitating skills and knowledge sharing across the sector.
The work we do involves a strategic action and delivery-based approach to overcoming discrimination, exclusion, and under representation among the BME, and other marginal communities, in the South West. Moreover, our approach also aims to empower these communities by tackling socio-economic deprivation by working in partnership with other agencies and organisations.
As a whole, BSWN is a one-stop-shop for capacity building and community empowerment where with our members we work to create a better informed, skilled and represented third sector
