BME

This report, jointly published by the Equalities National Council and Scope, came out of a need to understand how BME disabled people, their families and carers feel about the services available to them so they can be improved.

Document that is based on work undertaken between October 2010 and March 2011 and is presented in two parts. The first section highlights the need for greater consideration to be given to meeting the needs of Black and minority ethnic children and young people in all aspects of children’s services provision. Some of the key themes, policies and programmes are summarised and questions raised about their application to engage with and effectively address the needs of Black and minority ethnic children, young people and their families.
