Welcome to South West Dorset Multicultural Network

The South West Dorset Multicultural Network (SWDMCN) aims to end the isolation felt by people from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in South West Dorset.

The South West Dorset Multicultural Network will do this by promoting positive relationships between people from a diverse range of cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds, living or working in South West Dorset, and taking steps to proactively address any incidents of racism or harassment reported to us.
