Walking on Treacle: black and minority ethnic groups’ experiences of community capacity building

         

This paper, published by Third Sector Research Centre,  seeks to examine Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) groups’ experiences of community capacity building initiatives in urban and rural regions of England.

The main aim of the research was to understand the relationship between BME groups and community capacity building initiatives – both historically and in the current context of reductions in infrastructure support. The research is distinctive in that it examined the position of BME groups in relation to community capacity building over time. The term BME relates herein to people not born in the UK, as well as second and third generations and, therefore, includes white European migrants. A further aim of the research was to discover if there was actually an aspiration for front line BME community groups to build their capacity, rather than focus on service delivery, and whether this purpose was shared with funders and suppliers of capacity building support.
