The SE Wales Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Housing Strategy was prepared by Salford University on behalf of the SE Wales Partnership, a collaboration between 4 local authorities and 6 housing associations.
The aim of the strategy is to:
- Ensure that unlawful racial discrimination does not occur
- Promote equal opportunities for all ethnic groups
- Deliver a high standard of service to people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities within a framework of empowerment, Best Value and the Wales Programme for Improvement
- Provide services that are sensitive to differences in need, language and cultural practices
- Recognise the diversity of local communities and to foster good relations between the communities
- Take positive action to address existing disadvantage and encourage a more inclusive society
