An evaluation of the Race Equality Network

By Peter Somerville

Abstract

This report evaluates the work of the Race Equality Network, set up to help housing providers improve their services for black and minority ethnic communities. The Race Equality Network was set up in Yorkshire and Humberside and the North East to help housing providers improve their services for black and minority ethnic communities. This report reviews the substantial changes that have been made to the network since its inception, including its transformation into the Housing Diversity Network; how these changes are viewed by the network’s clients, potential clients, and housing organisations in Yorkshire and Humberside, and the North East; and the prospects for the development of the network in the future. The paper contains a number of important recommendations for policy makers, in particular that similar networks should be developed in other regions, with support from the Housing Corporation and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister
