Later Matters – Tackling Race Inequalities for BME Older People

With funding from Communities and Local Government, Age Concern Yorkshire and Humber managed an exciting new project, helping organisations which provide health and social care services to make their services easier to access for Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) older people.

We helped organisations to understand how they can make their services easier to access and will give them advice and training.

Later Matters aimed to:

raise awareness of service provision within the region and increase opportunities for partnership working

give BME elders, carers and organisations a voice in the design and quality of services available to them; and

provide organisations with a resource to measure how accessible their services are to BME older people and plan for future improvements
