BEMIS is the national Ethnic Minorities led umbrella body supporting the development of the Ethnic Minorities Voluntary Sector in Scotland and the communities that this sector represents.
Our vision is of a Scotland that is equal, inclusive and responsive: A society where:
- people from the diverse communities are valued, treated with dignity and respect,
- have equal citizenship, opportunities and equality of life,
- and who actively participate in civic society.
BEMIS and SPTC are working together on an exciting new project, Gathered Together - Cruinn Còmhla, to support parents from ethnic and cultural minorities getting involved with their children's school.
Funded through the Scottish Government Early Intervention Fund and managed by The Big Fund, this new innovative approach is to encourage parents and carers from ethnic and cultural minorities throughout Scotland to come and be part of Parent Councils enabling wider parental participation in their children's education.
