Voscur, the BMEEG (Bristol City Council Black staff group), Bristol Compact and Bristol BME Voice facilitated an event on 18 February with BME-led organisations in Bristol to discuss how organisations could increase understanding of, and participation in, Commissioning opportunities, especially with a view to influencing the commissioning process.

Those present had a lot to contribute to the discussion and it is evident that further support and development is required to increase BME-led voice and access to the commissioning process.
