Multicultural Cumbria has been set up to empower minority groups & the wider community. We aim to improve communication on grass roots level. Building confidence, self esteem, social opportunities and community cohesion.

Our aims are to support individuals & groups from BME communities to embrace their culture and share it with friends & neighbours.

We aim to seek out BME people that live & work in Cumbria to be actively involved, before we look for skills outside of the county
