Community Development Foundation publish final evaluation of Tackling Race Inequalities Fund
Posted on Fri 5 Aug 2011
Recipients of the Department of Communities and Local Government 'Tackling Race Inequalities Fund' have been praised for reaching over 1,400 organisations and over 40,000 individual beneficiaries over the course of the two year programme. Twenty six organisations produced over 45 research publications and policy briefings and over 20 new resources such as magazines, toolkits, guidance, blogs and websites to address race equality issues.
The programme ran from July 2009 to June 2011 and sought to achieve goals including:
- the promotion of equality of opportunity, access and outcomes for people from black and minority ethnic groups in education, employment health, housing and the criminal justice system
- research into the challenges facing black and minority ethnic communities, and good practice strategies to tackle these barriers
- increased engagement, participation, volunteering or representation of black and minority ethnic groups
- support for local bodies promoting race equality, including those supporting the victims of racially motivated crime.
- work with particularly disadvantaged people within BAME groups, including women, young people and people with disabilities.

Better Health and Better Housing
The Race Equality Foundation has been carrying out the Better Health and Better Housing project under the TRIF funding. During the last two years we have:
- developed the Better Health and Better Housing websites (see www.better-health.org.uk and www.better-housing.org.uk), which bring together extensive collections of free to view resources
- produced 42 evidence-based briefing papers providing good practice for health and housing practitioners
- circulated the Better Health and Better Housing newsletters to a readership of around 1500 people.
Although the TRIF funding has now finished, the Foundation will continue our work under the Better Health and Better Housing project.
