Through debates, discussions, awareness-raising, and informative initiatives, BAME HUB-UK NETWORK C.I.C. addresses issues relevant to BAME communities and their families. Operating nationwide, BAME HUB-UK NETWORK C.I.C. has established regional branches across the UK.
Our research has revealed the existence of structural inequalities affecting various aspects of life, including health, education, crime, policing, and the post-migration experiences of BAME communities. These disparities encompass issues like racism, discrimination, hate crimes, unfriendly immigration policies, cultural differences, language barriers, inadequate housing, unemployment, and poverty. It is essential to recognise that these factors, directly and indirectly, impact the mental health and overall well-being of BAME communities, rendering them more vulnerable to adverse health outcomes, including a higher risk of COVID-19 mortality.
In response to these critical challenges, we emphasize the necessity of acknowledging the interconnection of these structural inequalities and their impact on BAME communities. By illuminating individuals’ intricate web of difficulties in these communities, we aim to raise awareness, foster understanding, and drive meaningful action to instigate positive change. Our mission revolves around the aspiration to build a more equitable society where everyone, irrespective of their background, enjoys equal opportunities and access to essential services, thereby ensuring the well-being and prosperity of all community members.
