Ageing Equally (BAME Co-research and Leadership)
Working in partnership with the GM BAME Network, we want to support the voices of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) leaders in policy development. We want to build capacity and confidence though a programme of co-research and development to allow BAME leaders to share their valuable knowledge and experience in the ageing debate.
Through this project, we are funding a number of small insight reports from BAME community organisations. We will link to our partners at the University of Manchester and the GM Ageing Hub to make the best use of existing research capacity and policy structures.
Research that we have conducted on BAME communities has highlighted the need for much more specific research, community by community. Co-research with marginalised communities is vital to highlight the key issues, as well as build capacity in communities.
