Round 5 Outcomes

The challenges faces by people from BME and migrant communities, (and the solutions to these) are many and complex, e.g: language barriers; lack of awareness of local services and eligibility to these; the specific health and well-being challenges affecting particular communities; lack of awareness or understanding, or racism/prejudice on the part of service providers.

In this round the panel wishes to promote improved health and wellbeing, care and independence of members of Hull’s BME and migrant communities by:

  • Supporting and facilitating better access to services that promote improved health and wellbeing, care and independence
  • Raising awareness among BME and migrant communities about eligibility and access to services that promote improved health and wellbeing, care and independence
  • Enabling members of BME and migrant communities to overcome the barriers they face to improved health and wellbeing, care and independence

The panel invites applications from:

  • projects and services that promote BME and migrant communities’ improved health and wellbeing, care and independence
  • and from those that need to enable increased access to their services by BME and migrant communities

Eligible projects must be targeted at people aged 16+ living in Hull, and/or registered with a Hull GP.
