Our History

aboutusFrom 1998 onwards Medway Council held focus group meetings and consultations to engage the ethnic minority communities in its Core Values to demonstrate inclusiveness.

During its inception period Medway Ethnic Minority Forum was extensively supported by the then Chief Executive, Judith Armitt, Director Richard Simmons and Councillor Angela Prodger.Finally in April 2001, Medway Council supported the unanimous decision of the community representatives to establish the Medway Ethnic Minority Forum.

The Forum was thereby established and registered at Companies House in the form of a private company, limited by guarantee and not having a share capital, on 25th July 2001.The current Chief Executive of Medway Council, Neil Davies, Director of Regeneration, Community & Culture, Robin Cooper with other officers currently champion the Forum and its strategic objectives including progress on the Multicultural Community Centre.
