Action for Black and Minority and Ethnic Communities Cambridgeshire (ABMEC C.I.C)

ABMEC CIC is a community interest company funded by the Big Lottery for a five year project to December 2012.  Based in Cambridgeshire we provide support and advice to Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Communities, migrant workers and asylum seekers to improve life chances for integration into British Society. 


ABMEC CIC works to promote and strengthen existing and new communities whose members will benefit from cultural events designed to promote community cohesion, workshop activities and basic skills training.  Through working in partnership with local organisations and through community consultation we encourage all to play an active role in shaping the Project.
