Ethnic minority health and housing

Mark Johnson, Richard Tomlins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

For a long time, UK social policy has been 'colour blind' - that is,
policy makers and many practitioners have sought to insist that they 'treat all clients equally' and 'take no account of race, ethnicity or skin colour'. This may lead to growing ethnic or 'racial' disparity of treatment and outcome. As ethnic differences in cultural and clinical needs exist, identical treatment that ignores these differences increases rather than decreases inequality of outcome.1 The 2000 Race Relations Amendment Act places a legal duty on all public services, including housing, to combat discrimination.
