This report was commissioned by five Buckinghamshire charities – Buckinghamshire Mind, Citizens Advice Buckinghamshire, Age UK Buckinghamshire and Wycombe Wanderers Foundation – which between them work to support the mental, physical, and financial wellbeing of Buckinghamshire residents. These charities wanted to understand how they could better engage with communities that do not identify as White British. The findings of the project shed light on the fact that while many people from minority ethnic communities appreciate the positive intent and great work of charities in Bucks, more work needs to be done to ensure that everyone is aware of the services they provide, people feel comfortable accessing them, and that charity staff and volunteers are representative of the communities they serve. The project was funded by The Rothschild Foundation, Heart of Bucks, and The Clare Foundation.
