How can NICVA support the Ethnic Minority sector?
The overall purpose of the session would be to inform ethnic minority sector organisations about what support services NICVA can offer and what support NICVA could provide in addition to what the sector is currently receiving. We will have staff from NICVA along to provide an overview of their various teams and we will also provide some time for networking at the end of the session.
If you represent an ethnic minority organisation, please do come along and find out about any support or services NICVA can offer you.
