    The experiences of BME communities within the UK housing system can be understood in the context of post-colonial and other immigration and settlement histories: growing progress towards ‘race’ equality, and wider changes in providing housing for people on low incomes. Drawing on research conducted mainly in England and Scotland, this chapter considers some of the key issues affecting BME groups’ access to housing and their experiences of the housing system, including lack of access to housing (homelessness). It then considers participation, discussing the rise and decline of English black-led housing associations.
