...researching housing needs in North Wales

Researching the Housing Needs of the Black and Minority Ethnic Community

In 2005 we completed a research project for the North Wales RSL Equality Partnership, looking at the very different needs and experiences of North Wales’ tiny ethnic minority population, and assisted the preparation of NWREP’s joint BME housing needs strategy. This again involved survey work with BME households, across an area of more than 600 square miles, scattered across six Boroughs. The North Wales BME population forms less than 1% of the 660,000 population of North Wales, making this an extremely difficult project to coordinate, nevertheless we were able to speak to over 200 households in detail, about their circumstances.
