Our Members are volunteers who are representatives from a variety of ethnic minorities living in DLR. They play a leading role in designing all Forum’s events, projects and initiatives. DLREMI Forum Members meet at least once every six week to discuss the issues that are concerning the ethnic minorities and plan activities of the Forum. They report back to their communities on the outcomes from the meetings.

Membership of the Forum is open anyone - to individuals and representatives of immigrant-led groups and organisations based in the DLR county area and we would encourage anyone interested in promoting inclusion and immigrant integration to get involved.
