2. BLOG: Talk in inequality – a partnership funded by NIHR between EMIC and other important community organisations in the South-East.

By Dr Anusree Biswas Sasidharan, Director, Bridging Change (left) and Lillian Ndawula, Development Worker (volunteer), Ethnic Minorities in Canterbury (right).

Over the last three years, we as community organisations and NIHR partners in the south east – have had a lot of robust conversations about health inequalities, experienced by racialised minority ethnic communities and organisations. And, as a partnership, we received some money from the NIHR’s Reaching Out funding programme to explore barriers to involvement and participation in research and how we might address them. As a part of Reaching Out programme we had an online consensus workshop; held numerous meetings; and led a series of local outreach events, to explore how health and social care research could be improved.
