A report titled “Personalisation in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities” is being published by TLAP to find examples of promising practice that demonstrate what good personalised community-based care and support looks like for people in ethnically diverse communities.
Fourteen organisations across England feature in this report, offering a wide range of support and services in particular groups and communities. The project was undertaken during the Covid-19 pandemic and the work also highlights how organisations responded to this challenge.
“Shining a light on inequalities and examples of how things can improve can help us transition towards a fairer country where we can all live, work, play, and express ourselves. We hope that by exploring what good, personalised care and support looks like for people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities, we can encourage commissioners and funders to help move towards the more equal country we’re striving for.”
Clenton Farquharson MBE, Chair of Think Local Act Personal, and Race Equality Foundation Trustee
The report showcases examples of organisations and individuals’ experience, and should serve as a useful resource for commissioners and funders to integrate some of these ideas into their own practice.
