This report summarises the results of a research project supported by the Community University Partnership Initiative (CUPI) and led by NLPC in collaboration with University College London Urban Laboratory, Birkbeck, University of London and Ubele-Ourspace. It considers the experiences of community organisations led by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities (BAMECOs) in relation to urban regeneration programmes and local authority policies on equality and diversity in the London boroughs of Haringey, Lambeth and Newham.
The research aims were to compare access, outcomes and experiences for BAMECOs in the three boroughs and – by studying the impact of local authority diversity policies – to understand routes to better engagement of BAMECOs in regeneration. The study took place during May-July 2019 and was informed by desk research and 22 interviews with research participants, who included stakeholders from BAMECOs, borough-based third sector umbrella groups, local authority officers and councillors with a regeneration brief.
