“ Our organisation is bringing members from different communities together. With our activities and advice sessions we get to know each other, accept each other as we are. We share our culture and values, praise them and help and support each other on our way of life in England. We have to teach new generations, our children to learn to live life in harmony with people from different ethnicities and backgrounds - as well be part of the whole community.”
“ Our B&DREC is a community organization established to support communities within the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham. Our main objectives are to support people who are discriminated on grounds of race, gender, and age. We work to give people a voice, linking people together and then linking them with other organisations.”
“ B&DREC is celebrating its 40th year of working hard at eliminating racial inequality in B&D and the surrounding area. With a committed staff full trained in different areas of expertise. We will make the borough a fairer and more just area - celebrating and promoting racial equality and what benefits we can all gain from this.”
