The UK poverty rate is twice as high for Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) groups as for white groups. This round up finds that there are a number of drivers for the high BME poverty rate:
- higher unemployment
- higher rates of economic inactivity
- higher likelihood of lower pay
- geographic location
- migration status, and
- educational attainment
It also highlights key solutions for employers, local authorities, education support services and city regions to take on board.
