This report - written by MICRA's Camilla Lewis and Natalie Cotterell - explores the risk and protective factors of social isolation amongst BAME groups. It concludes that fuuture research must acknowledge variations across and within BAME groups, as well as exploring other factors, including existing gender and class differences.
