The aim of the project was to:

  • Raise awareness of the lived experiences of ethnically diverse communities living and working in Arun and Chichester – their priorities, challenges, issues, and concerns.
  • Share information about emerging initiatives that positively respond to the identified needs of ethnically diverse people.
  • Offer recommendations to reduce barriers to improve access into services, based on these communities’ shared experience.
  • Actively work in partnership with others to improve pathways and appropriateness of access into services and overall service provision across the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector for ethnically diverse communities.
