Black and Minority Ethnic (BME)

Getting it right

Assessments for BME carers and service users

Older woman's hands

This learning resource provides the learner with the necessary skills and knowledge to critically examine – from point of assessment to actual service delivery – how the needs of minority ethnic carers and service users are currently being met. It therefore aims to ensure that the need to achieve equality of opportunity and access lies at the heart of individual and collective practice.
