South West Social Action Directory

Below is the information of organisations working on social justice issues in the South West:

The Black South West Network (BSWN), Marginalised Groups

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. To find out more visit their website.
