Funded by Comic Relief and the National Emergency Trust, GM BAME Network, supported by GMCVO, awarded grants of £1000 - £3000 to 56 small GM BAME led VCSE organisations. The grants will support organisations to respond to the needs of Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME*) communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We would like to thank the GM BAME Leaders for their hard work and invaluable expertise throughout this grants programme.

*GMCVO uses the BAME acronym as we believe it is widely understood, but we acknowledge many feel this term is inadequate and limiting. We are therefore currently reviewing of our use of the term. Our principle is to refer to individuals, organisations or networks by the terminology they themselves prefer.
