Dorset Race Equality Council co-ordinates a regular Diversity Forum on behalf of partners in public and community sectors. The aims of the Bournemouth and Poole Equality and Diversity Forum are:
• To build the capability of diversity groups and organisations within the voluntary and community sector.
• To promote their effective involvement within the voluntary and community and third sector in the development of policy and the planning and delivery of services.
