Below is the information of organisations working in the area of Marginalised Groups:

The Vagina Museum, London

The Vagina Museum is the world's first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to the gynaecological anatomy. They have six aims, which are: to spread knowledge and raise awareness of the gynaecological anatomy and health; to give confidence to people to talk about issues surrounding the gynaecological anatomy; erase the stigma around the body and gynaecological anatomy; to act as a forum for feminism, women’s rights, the LGBT+ community and the intersex community; Challenge heteronormative and cisnormative behaviour; and to promote intersectional, feminist and trans-inclusive values.  The Vagina Museum hosts a number of events, including many online events – these can be viewed by clicking on the events section of their website. Volunteers are also essential to the work of the Vagina Museum and information about voluntary opportunities can be viewed on their jobs page here. Alternatively, if there are no volunteer opportunities currently listed but you want to see how you might get involved in the work carried out by the Museum use their contact form here.

The Black South West Network (BSWN), Bristol

BSWN has an over-arching strategic intention to build dynamic, independent, and strong Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities, businesses and organisations that are empowered to flourish while challenging systemic barriers and forging a true path for themselves. BSWN believes that only through this will we significantly address racial inequality. Their work falls into three broad areas - Cross-sector Enterprise and Innovation; Cultural Inclusion; Research and Knowledge – with Scrutiny and Accountability and Representation and Power as an over-arching theme that cut through all their work. Their overarching vision is a society in which inequality and discrimination on the basis of racial or ethnic categorisation is wholly and completely absent. BSWN has six core values: equity; inclusivity; justice; fairness; fairness; honesty; and accountability. Full Individual membership  to BSWN is open to any Black/Minoritised individual resident in the South West region who shares their aims. Associate membership is open to those individuals and groups who are not eligible for full membership but who support their aims. Associate membership is also open to people or groups who do not reside in the South West Region. Associate members may attend meetings of BSWN and speak but may not vote.
