Reflecting on the term BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnicities)

The term BAME is embedded within many of our funders criteria and categories to recognise people that may be particularly marginalised.  We felt that reflective consideration was important especially given the growing criticism it has faced, including the Governments heavily criticises Sewell report, 2021 and the 202 global Black Lives Matter protests.

The term is not used consistently with the people that we support, as a group or identity of belonging.  However, the terms remains quite vital in funding applications, and remains a category used by funders to identify marginalised groups, communities and racial/ethnic minorities in the UK.
