The impact of Coronavirus on Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority communities

Earlier this year, HOPE not hate Charitable Trust conducted rare polling of BAME communities’ experiences and views across a range of issues, including ethnic minority experiences during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

This research found that BAME groups have been the hardest hit not just by the Coronavirus itself, but also by the subsequent economic fall-out, resulting in scepticism towards the government’s response to the current crisis.

Our findings have substantial implications for public health messaging, testing and contact tracing and trust amongst BAME groups and economic support during a recovery.
