Impact of COVID-19 on the BAME Community and Voluntary Sector in Wales

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is changing rapidly, and it already has an impact on the community and voluntary sector in Wales, and more specifically, a disproportionate impact on BAME communities. If you’re working in a BAME community and voluntary organisation in Wales, we would like to hear from you (i.e. defined as any community group or organisation which is run predominantly for or by people of Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds).

Your participation will help us to:

  • build a more accurate picture of the growing concerns and impact of the pandemic, during and as lock down measures begin to ease;
  • capture the ways in which BAME community groups and organisations are working innovatively, and seeking to provide services and support to Wales’ BAME residents during this period of crisis;
  • inform funders and policy-makers on responding to the crisis as it impacts on BAME communities and organisations

We will share the findings to those who responded to the survey so that they can show-case the expertise, knowledge and innovation of the BAME Sector in Wales, as well as some of the challenges they face in the commissioning and delivery of their services. We will also be sharing our findings with Welsh Government, social care providers, the wider third sector and others with the aim of shaping policy priorities and funding streams. In mapping both the assets and challenges of the sector, our aim is to help ensure the sustainability of the BAME sector and the wellbeing of the people they serve..

Urgent response required, latest by midday, 7th July 2020
