In the UK there is no organisation like The Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Hub-UK Network that can be used to act as a focal point in discussing and disseminating the issues that arise from the BAME community and the UK goverments at large. Therefore, BAME Hub-UK Network is a One-Stop-Shop across the UK, united under one umbrella, in Our Dedication to the BAME Communities’ empowerment.

We found that there are structural inequalities in health, education,
crime, policing, and BAME experience post-migration living difficulties such
as; racism, discrimination, hate crime, hostile immigration policies, cultural
differences and language barriers, poor housing, lack of employment, poverty,
etc. These factors may have directly or indirectly impacted the mental health
and overall health well-being of BAME communities in one way or the other and are more likely to die from covid-19
