York Racial Equality Network (YREN)

Clifton Ward, York


York Racial Equality Network (YREN) provides a range of services to promote awareness of the needs of black and minority ethnic people and others in the York area. This includes information and resources on race equality issues, and independent, impartial information and mutual support to people experiencing racial harassment, victimisation, discrimination or isolation.

Hate crime reporting:YREN is one of York’s designated hate crime reporting centres. A hate crime is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someones prejudice towards them because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender. If you, or anyone you know, has been called names, been bullied or had anything happen to them that you think may be because of one of these factors, then you should report this as a hate incident.
Even if you don’t want the incident to be investigated, it is important that YREN know about it, so that we can build up a picture of how many incidents are happening and where.

Representation: YREN represents the equality voice for BME people and organisations and others on a range of partnership boards.

YREN also provides information and resources for individuals, organisations and the community as a whole on race equality issues; and runs various projects.

York Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Individuals and Groups Open Forum: The Open Forum aims to give BME groups and individuals the opportunity to express and discuss any issues affecting their lives, inform service providers – statutory, voluntary, community or private – of the needs and issues identified at the Open Forum, provide opportunities for consultation between statutory and voluntary organisations and the BME population.

Voice Project: YREN’s Voice Project (funded by Comic Relief) aims to give a voice to members of York’s diverse BME groups and support volunteers to influence the planning and delivery of services that are more appropriate, more effective and that meet people’s diverse cultural needs. The project will train and support volunteers to get involved in meetings and activities where services are being designed and decisions about service delivery are being made.

YREN Outreach: A free outreach service at Tang Hall Community Centre every Wednesday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm
