The British Tamils Forum (BTF) as a nonpartisan, grassroots community organisation representing the collective voice of the Tamil Community in the UK, by bringing together individuals and Tamil organisations in a bottom-up structure, governed along the principles of participatory democracy. Tamil people living across the length and breadth of the UK participate in BTF through their Constituency Tamils Forum (CTF) by electing their representatives annually to the National Assembly (NA) of BTF.
CTFs are the building blocks of this organisation; the views expressed by BTF are those of the majority of its members. Thus members are able to influence the strategic directions of BTF by participating in CTF and NA meetings and activities.
Political party support groups such as the Tamils for Labour (TfLab), the British Tamil Conservatives (BTC) and the Tamil Friends of Liberal Democrats (TFoLD) are also represented in the national assembly and influence our strategic directions on behalf of the Tamil Community within the political parties in the UK.
There are over 21 CTFs across the UK involved in campaigns locally as well though the local branches of the political parties in the UK.
Our volunteers are instrumental in delivering successful campaigns and raising funds for our projects. By involving with the BTF, you will be able to meeting new friends, develop new skills and most importantly, you will be able to contribute to the fight for peace with justice and dignity for Tamil people in Sri Lanka.
