In March 2006, an event for the Black and Minority Ethnic community was held in Havering, which was attended by about 200 people. This event provided the opportunity for the BME community to network with each other and with council departments in Havering as well as with other key agencies in the Borough. One of the issues identified on the day was the absence of a forum for the BME community in Havering.

Following the event in March, the Community Regeneration Team and Corporate Equalities Department of Havering Council held a succession of networking meetings to collate ideas for the proposed forum and so the BME Forum was officially established in February 2007.
