BAME Research Project - Winning bids announced
We are delighted to announce the five organisations that will be delivering this BAME research project in Birmingham, Camden, Hackney, Leicester and Manchester.
This research project will explore the types of social infrastructure that people aged 50 and over from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities use in specific places.
The aim of the project is to understand how BAME-led organisations engage with members from their community and how this might have changed over time, and to explore how individuals from BAME communities use places, organisations and services for social contact and interaction.
The project is a part of Ageing Better, which is a National Lottery Community Fund programme which funds fourteen partnerships across the UK, one of which is Ambition for Ageing. Five of these partnerships are taking part in this project and in these areas the following organisations were successful:
- Birmingham: Ashiana Community Project
- Camden: Camden Healthwatch
- Hackney: Community Advance Project
- Leicester: Centre for Black and Minority Ethnic Health
- Manchester: The Manchester BME Network
