Constituting the SuffolkBlack Community Forum

For the SBCF to achieve it’s objectives and maintain the goal of creating a one-voice advocacy service for the Black community, it will need to be constituted with support from the entire community in order to be the key stakeholder in partnership development with other stakeholders across the county.

It also means, the SBCF, will be able to reach beyond the borders of Suffolk in collaboration with other Black organisations across the country and beyond.

What Is Happening Now


The following steps have been recommended for the next stages of constituting the Forum.
