Czech-british non-profit organisation was founded 9 October 2007. Prior to this, the founding members gained experience over many years in the social and educational sectors, and participated on a long-term basis in co-operating and furthering contacts with non-profit organizations in Great Britain. Starting up this organization became a logical conclusion to these efforts and one of the main pillars our activities became the transfer of good practice experience from abroad and applying it here, in the somewhat different conditions of the Czech Republic. One of the founders became Sheila Bamford who has worked in the British non-profit sector for over thirty years particularly in the areas of social care and management within the non-profit sector. Honourable Chairman of our organization became John Grogan, English M.P. who has held the Selby seat for twelve years and who devotes himself to the social sector and is the Deputy Chairman of the British-Czech Inter-Parliamentary group which supports mutual links and co-operation between organizations and people in both countries.

Details of COFEM can now be accessed through the Housing Diversity Network site. About COFEM COFEM (Career Opportunities for Ethnic Minorities) is a concept that has developed over a number of years. It stemmed initially from a piece of research by Salford University, on behalf of the National Housing Federation and the Housing Corporation, which identified a lack of career opportunities for black and minority ethnic (BME) people within the housing sector. COFEM then developed in the North West when a group of HR professionals from housing associations and local authorities decided to consider the research, use its recommendations and develop practical actions, which would go some way towards promoting and improving diversity in employment. COFEM has developed new and real actions that make a difference to both the culture of organisations and individual BME staff. COFEM is in the process of developing nationally with groups in various areas of the country. Supported by the Housing Corporation, the aim of these groups is to take the work already developed and implement it locally.
