Hull Ethnic Minorities Community Centre Foundation Limited logo
  • Need


    To address the difficulties that Ethnic Minorities find in securing opportunities for education and employment, and to improve both integration and involvement in recreation and leisure activities not usually subscribed by BME people in the city of Hull and the UK.
    HEMCCFL attempts to make its activities both inclusive and accessible by all ethnic minorities and at the same time transparent by those outside the organisation.


    By breaking down the barriers experienced by BME people living in the uk that they experience in finding work and social experiences with native english people.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To improve the english language skills of BME people.


    » By providing ESOL classes that are free at the point of need or low cost to those who can afford to pay.
    » By providing opportunities for BME people to socialise and communicate with native english speakers.
    » By providing low cost IELTS preparation to BME people wanting to go to University.
    » To provide a place for trainee teachers to learn about the lifelong learning sector.

    What success will look like

    Success will be measured by the continued attendance, finding work or further education, passing of exams, meeting and creating friendships with native englis h people.

  • Impact


    Long term changes for our clients will mean they continue their education, find work or maintain friendships with native english people. Overall success will be measured by the increase in well-being for both native english, and Black and Minority Ethnic people and the creation of a culture where all are valued and included and the reduction in racism and mistrust.


    There are many risks involved in our area of interest. Politically we are threatened by the rise of far right politics and xenophobia., we check all volunteers through DBS/CRB and internet.
    Financially, the organisation is affected by political propaganda in the press which affects the amount of funding we can access we are very low cost.
    Finding staff that are reliable, enthusiastic and willing to put in the effort, we are always seeking more volunteers.


    Donors may dictate to us the terms of our reports to them dependant on the size of the donation. We will report to donors via our website or by email, they may also visit in person.
