Newcastle CVS latest report is Welcome Here: ­­Celebrating voluntary sector work with the diverse Black, Asian, and minority ethnic communities in Newcastle and Gateshead.

This report discusses increasing the accessibility of services; wellbeing and health; education and employment; tackling racism, discrimination, prejudice, and hate crime; that women face structural inequalities; and participation in cultural, community, and public life. 

The national context, recent reports and changing demographics of Newcastle and Gateshead are set out, along with short vignettes of different voluntary and community organisations.

For Welcome Here, Newcastle CVS asked voluntary and community organisations about the issues facing the Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities that they work with, and sought out stories about the outstanding work that they are doing.

In addition to the report, we have begun to produce useful resources and tips that your organisation can use and share. The first is our Welcome Here poster, a template for which can be found at the bottom of our Information Sheets page under 'others'. There is an A4 or A3 template pdf that you can adapt for your organisation, print, sign and display in your workplace to make visitors feel welcome.
