Our team champions intercultural integration. We work towards inclusion for all who live in and around Somerset.
Diversity Voice is a registered charity, established in 2014. We build on the work of our predecessors, MECA and Somerset Polish Association, and can draw on 15 years' experience working in and around Somerset.
We provide direct support for migrant communities, and also work with established communities to further our aims. As well as working with individuals, we partner with statutory and third sector organisations, and businesses, to provide advice and practical support to further our goals.
Currently, our key funding comes from the Home Office and HPC Community Fund, and we have a service agreement with Somerset Council.
Our board of 5 trustees bring diverse experience to the organisation.
