Giving CECF a voice

Cambridge Ethic Community Forum (or CECF) is an umbrella organisation for Cambridge that provides racial equality and diversity services to individuals and groups, promoting an understanding between people from differing ethnic backgrounds.Their vision is a world where diverse communities live in harmony and every individual, regardless of race, nationality or ethnic origin, has the opportunity to realise their full potential.
The Forum’s website can be seen here:

Support Cambridgeshire has been working with the Forum to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence in the field of voice and representation, making them better able to exert influence and capacity over funding bodies and strategic stakeholders.
Forum members attended Support Cambridgeshire’s bespoke training on how to be a voluntary sector representative, which gave them a valuable set of tool-kits for increasing confidence levels when advocating, and an understanding of the sensitivities of negotiating a sector wide perspective in today’s current and challenging climate.

Perpetua Gora states:

I recently attended the course on Voice and Representation. I learned a lot, particularly about the time and commitment required to be a good representative.

Dulce Lewcock of the Women’s Voice for Africa states:

I attended the recent Voice and Representation course provided by Support Cambridgeshire. The trainer was very approachable and the information was easy to understand.

The course has given me increased confidence to represent my group.
