Hand with marker writing: We Believe in Making a Difference

We are an independent voluntary organisation based in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham established in 1969.

Our purpose is to work to eliminate all forms of unfair discrimination and promote equal opportunity and good relations between people of different racial or religious groups, different backgrounds and lifestyles within the Borough and the surrounding area.

2019 is our 50th year since the establishment of the Barking and Dagenham racial equality council, reflecting on 50 years of service and commitment to local communities in the spirit of community cohesion, building stronger relationships, and bridging the gap between diverse cultures.
