BME people and homelessness in Wales - call for research participants
- Friday, 13 April 2012
Do you think your organisation could help reach BME people affected by housing problems and/or homelessness in Wales?
Shelter Cymru and Tai Pawb are carrying out research to make sure that Welsh housing and homelessness services are as effective as they can be for the Black and Minority Ethnic people of Wales.
They are currently looking for research participants from various BME groups and have already interviewed some BME groups, but they want to make sure they reach everyone they can. They are particularly looking for participants from the following groups:
- South Asian
- Gypsies and Travellers
Also, BME people affected by any of the following:
- Mental or physical health problems
- Domestic Violence
- Poverty/ Low income
- People made homeless in private rented sector
- People who were sleeping in hostels
- Rough sleepers
- Hidden Homeless (people who were homeless but never presented as homeless)
Their researchers are highly flexible and can conduct interviews by phone, face-to-face or in a group, in a place that suits participants. They will pay for travel expenses and compensate participants for their time with £5.
If you think you could help reach people from these groups, please contact Shelter Cymru - see below.
