his report outlines the results of a two year’s study to assess the housing and related needs of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities in Bedfordshire. 1. The research aimed to: • Identify communities and raise awareness amongst them of the services provided by housing associations and local authorities, and how to access those services; • Identify unmet housing needs, and projections of future housing needs (including social renting) within these communities and preferences for meeting them; • Work with communities to enable them to articulate preferences and needs; • Review and develop strategies for greater involvement in service provision; • Identify other benefits for the communities both from taking part in the process and from working with funders to meet identified housing need.
