Bridging Change is an independent organisation with the intention of building strong, dynamic and successful Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic groups, communities, organisations, businesses and individuals that are empowered to flourish, free from inequality and discrimination. 

Bridging Change was established by Nora Mzaoui and Dr Anusree Biswas Sasidharan who met as fellow elected Community Works Reps, representing Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic communities in Brighton and Hove.  They realised that there was a gap in support and representation of minoritised communities within the community, voluntary and public sector.   Bridging Change want to fill that gap.  They were driven by the belief that Black, Asian and  minoritised ethnic organisations, groups, communities and individuals were strongest when they worked together to challenge systemic barriers.  Bridging Change want to see a society where all individuals and communities have equal opportunities and feel valued and a sense of belonging in their locality.


Bridging Change want to see a society where Black, Asian and minoritsed ethnic groups are able to flourish, be independent and empowered to be stronger organisations and communities.  Our work falls into three main areas, building alliances, research and training.


At Bridging Change we are about relationship brokerage and building up agency in Black, Asian and minoritsed ethnic groups and organisations, we do this by:

  • facilitating spaces, events and networking meetings focusing on specific issues affecting Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic communities;​

  • co-producing workshops with the Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic communities and decision-makers to discuss, develop and design policy and

  • recognising that social capital and agency amongst Black, Asian and minoritised groups, communities and organisations will see agents of change in our city.


At Bridging Change, we are dedicated to ensuring that our work is evidence based, rooted on lived experience.  As Bridging Change we are about:

  • developing strong links with universities, think tanks, local organisations and councils to produce robust data and reports.;

  • developing of a bank of resources for social action and influencing change and

  • improving access to information and data for Black Asian and minoritised ethnic communities.


We do this by:

  • working with organisations to create change, provide critical reflection and co-design programmes with communities

  • creating bespoke training for Black Asian and minoritised ethnic groups to address topics or areas of interest and value 

  • providing bespoke equalities, diversity and inclusion training that is sector specific to support allies to examine their practices within their groups and organisations
