In this podcast, Vandna Gohil tells Bill Freeman, Director of Learning and Development at NAVCA, about the major challenges facing local BME voluntary organisations and community groups.

Vandna talks about the impact of recession on BME groups, why the Single Equalities Bill could dilute the advances made by the Race Relations Amendment Act and why she believes the new Compact weakens the position of BME community groups.

Vandna also tells us about the major successes Voice4Change has had since they were founded two and a half years ago and her hopes for 2010.
