Presents a study into the housing experiences of black and minority ethnic disabled and D/deaf (disabled deaf) people. Through focus groups involving BME disabled and D/deaf service users and their carers and statutory, public and voluntary sector service providers it explores: how disabled and D/deaf people from BME communities access appropriate housing; the disadvantages and barriers participants identified as preventing them from securing suitable accommodation and services; the key issue of whether their needs are best met by responding to them as a distinct group – as opposed to perceiving them simply as members of ‘BME’ or ‘disabled’ communities; and opportunities for conferring greater choice and control to BME disabled and D/deaf people

This discussion paper considers the characteristics of social care organisations that successfully promote diversity, and explores research on barriers to promoting diversity, as well as how these can be overcome. After exploring use of the term ‘diversity’, the authors suggest that diversity is used to mean taking account of the complexities of the lives of individuals and of groups of people, and the impact of these complexities on their experience of discrimination and disadvantage. In this context, the focus is on black and minority ethnic people as a group with multiple identities. So an organisation that successfully promotes diversity will take account of age, disability, gender and ‘race’ issues. In practice this could mean extending choice and control to a disabled Asian woman wanting to live ‘independently’ in an extension to her parents’ home, as well as to a 70-year-old Caribbean man with chronic arthritis living on his own in a council flat. This discussion paper draws on census data to demonstrate higher rates of longterm limiting illness and disability among black and minority ethnic communities in comparison to white communities, and in women in these communities more than men. This data is supplemented by evidence of a greater risk of unemployment and lower incomes amongst black and minority ethnic groups, and of poorer-quality housing. Black and minority ethnic communities are also less likely to benefit from a range of government initiatives that deal with social exclusion.

This article argues that an essential element of ensuring that short breaks and informal or peer support are a positive experience for disabled children from ethnic minorities is exploring what they want. This is done partly through direct communication with them rather than using parents or carers as a proxy.

For young disabled people who are of Asian, Caribbean and African origin, peer support groups provide a forum for emotional and practical support, enabling them to discuss issues around race, ethnicity and religion and to share experiences with others from the same background. Using young people's own words this report explores the development of these informal support groups. Topics include: the purpose of peer support groups; how the groups have formed; what works within the groups and why; what affects the growth and maintenance of such groups; examples of processes such as decision making and planning.
