About us

The Black & Minority Ethnic Advice Network (BAN) is facilitated by AdviceUK

The aims of BAN are:

  • to promote access to good quality, culturally appropriate advice
  • services to all Londoners to promote, foster, develop and encourage closer
  • working relationships amongst partner organisations to provide a voice for the BME-led advice sector in London, and assist and influence policy and decision-making where it affects the work of the sector

The partnership now consists of over 40 agencies across London. The aim of the partnership is to improve access to advice for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and refugee and migrant communities, in the fields of welfare rights, housing, immigration and asylum, health, education and employment.
