Toolkit For: Increasing Participation of Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Groups in Health and Social Care Research



Black and Asian minority ethnic (BAME) groups make up about 13% of the population of the United Kingdom
(Office of National Statistics, 2011) and are forecast to increase significantly in the coming decades.
BAME groups are more likely to suffer from poorer health outcomes and health and social care inequalities
in general. However, they are much less likely to be represented in health and social care research studies.
This makes obtaining good quality research information from, and with, these groups even more important.
