Being Visible in Our Communities

The National Ambulance BME Forum is keen to participate in events that raise awareness of BME communities, their culture and heritage each year. An important part of this is the engagement events at a local level throughout the year, and whist we have had a small presence at events in the past we are keen to increase this going forward. The network is also keen to raise awareness of the lived experiences of our BME communities and hope that in sharing our resources and taking part in events both at a local and national level we can increase our visibility in our communities.

Lest We Forget

Armistice Day is on 11 November and is also known as Remembrance Day. It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Though we should always remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to safeguard our future, this date has been marked as a memorial day observed by Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

The NABMEF wanted to mark Remembrance Day 2019 with a new resource pack to honour those who served.

The National Ambulance BME Forum has also produced a short video to go along with the resource pack.
