Findings of Bristol BAME sector review
The BAME-led community sector in Bristol has been decimated by a legacy of austerity and underinvestment. In order to thrive, it needs investment to defuse the tension between competition for resources and the need for collaboration, strong networks to foster connectivity, intensive support to build capacity and inclusive strategies and processes for transferring assets to BAME organisations. The report acknowledges that rebuilding the sector will be a long-term process that must regenerate trust and confidence.
This research was carried out by Black South West Network from May-September 2018.
