As a strategic national infrastructure organisation, BEMIS aims to empower the diverse Ethnic Minority third sector. We are committed to promoting inclusion, democratic active citizenship, recognition of diversity, human rights education, and wider representation, as well as effecting a proactive role in maintaining and enhancing pathways to influence government policy in regards to equality and human rights at local, Scottish, UK and EU levels.
Vaccine Information Fund
As Scotland moves through its vaccination programme, it is crucial that all of the people of Scotland have informed and equal access to information about the vaccine.
As such, BEMIS Scotland are commencing an Vaccine Information Fund programme with grants of up to £1,000 to empower communities to have engagement sessions about the vaccine programme and develop information assets that can be used for different communities.
