CEMVO Scotland

Improving the quality of life for all ethnic minority communities through improving access to social welfare, social justice, health, employment, housing, education and social enterprise

CEMVO Scotland is a national intermediary organisation and strategic partner of the Scottish Government Equality Unit.


Their aim is to build the capacity and sustainability of the ethnic minority (EM) voluntary sector and its communities.  Since being established in 2003, they have developed a database network of over 600 ethnic minority voluntary sector organisations throughout Scotland to which they deliver a wide range of programmes that provide capacity building support to the sector.


Underpinned by race equality, CEMVO Scotland’s mission is to level the playing field for Scotland’s ethnic minority voluntary sector and its communities.  We will do this by:

  • building capacity and mobilising skills in organisations and their people;
  • fostering both individual and collective leadership;
  • enabling active participation in community, democratic and civic life; and
  • working strategically to raise the profile of and create opportunities for the sector.

All of our work will contribute to a Scottish society where ethnic minority communities’ contribution is recognised for its part in making Scotland a successful country.
