Review of Council Interaction with Black, Minority Ethnic and Travelling communities in the Fermanagh and Omagh Council district

The ‘Review of Council Interaction with Black, Minority Ethnic and Travelling communities in the Fermanagh and Omagh Council district’ provides an overview of key statistics and services available to BMET communities within the district. It also includes a summary of priorities for BMET communities identified through a consultation exercise.

It is anticipated the review will act as a useful planning tool for the Council and other agencies by helping to identify the needs of BMET communities.

An action plan listing proposed actions to be undertaken by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council in conjunction with a number of agencies to promote integration within the district is also contained within the report. The action plan is currently being implemented.

The  ‘Review of Council Interaction with Black, Minority Ethnic and Travelling communities in the Fermanagh and Omagh Council district’ is available to download from the related files panel on this web page.
