An evaluation of the Race Equality Network
An evaluation of the Race Equality Network, set up to help housing providers improve services for black and minority ethnic communities.
The Race Equality Network was set up in Yorkshire & Humberside and the North East to help housing providers improve their services for black and minority ethnic communities.
This report reviews:
- the substantial changes made to the network since its inception, including its transformation into the Housing Diversity Network;
- how these changes are viewed by the network’s clients, potential clients, and housing organisations in Yorkshire & Humberside, and the North East; and
- the prospects for the network’s development.
The paper contains a number of recommendations for policy-makers, in particular that similar networks should be developed in other regions, with support from the Housing Corporation and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.
