Cambridge Ethnic
Community Forum

CECF is an umbrella organisation for Cambridge and district that provides racial equality services to individuals and groups.  CECF provides a cultural diversity service that helps promote an understanding between people from different ethnic groups and help them be a natural part of Cambridge life. We give special social, cultural, moral and practical support to groups and develop particular projects where needed.  One of our key services is the Cambridgeshire Human Rights and Equality Support Service (CHESS). CECF is also developing a refugee service.

Our Vision

"Our vision is a world where diverse communities live in harmony and every individual, regardless of race, nationality or ethnic origin, has the opportunity to realize their full potential."

CECF Refugee Services provides a service for all asylum seekers and refugees who come to Cambridge. We are part of City Of Sanctuary, a grassroots, national movement of local people and community groups working to make their cities a place of welcome and safety for people seeking sanctuary from war and persecution.

Through our Refugee hardship fund we have been assisting some of the most destitute cases with short-term emergency assistance. However our fund is now running low. We are therefore fundraising to enable us to continue to meet those needs.

Please consider donating to our fund so that we can meet essential or critical needs of some of the most vulnerable people that we assist.
