Both organisations are charitable companies. ROTA and V4CE both have accessible premises.

Overarching Responsibilities will include:

  • Convening and facilitating meetings of CORE members and partner organisations to respond to local, regional or national issues and opportunities in raising issues of importance to BAME organisations and the people they represent.
