The voluntary and community sector in Newcastle and Gateshead has been at the front of developing support for Black, Asian, minority ethnic, asylum seeker, refugee, faith, and cultural communities. Many new groups have been established and led by Black, Asian, minority ethnic, refugee, faith and cultural communities and individuals; many generic voluntary organisations have developed specific BAME work within their programmes.

This report discusses the accessibility of services for BAME communities.
