Unequal impact of COVID-19: BAME disproportionality
With the whole country and world waking up to the deeply entrenched structural equalities that have impacted the lives of our Black, Asian and other ethnic Minority communities, there is a collective appreciation that we need to go further to dismantle a system, and create new ones.
Local and national evidence shows that people from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background are disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.
In response to this, the council implemented this working group to carry out a rapid 6-week programme to gather evidence of the impacts of Covid-19 and develop actions for supporting our residents during this time and beyond.
Intensive work has been underway to understand and take action to address the direct and indirect health impacts of Covid-19 on our Black, Asian and other Ethnic Minority communities in Camden, and to ensure that individuals and communities are protected both now and through the next phase of the pandemic, but also to bring about wider systemic change.
This document is us working in the open with you and shows the information that was provided by different service areas to the member-led working group for comment and to develop actions going forward.
The Black, Asian and other Ethnic Minority Inequalities and Covid-19 Working Group has benefitted from evidence and the lived experience of our residents, VCS partners, professionals and Members in guiding and shaping the Council’s response from bureaucratic to relational.
In this document you will find summaries of the data included in these presentation slides and the relevant links to documents.
