Bristol Black Carers

Bristol Black Carers Bristol Black Carers provides culturally-appropriate support and services to the Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) carers in Bristol. Through our work we strive to reduce enduring health and social care inequalities.

We carry out extensive outreach work within BME communities to identify needs; we work with a range of diverse communities and different faith and cultural groups. Our outreach work enables us to meet the individual needs of our service users and ensure they have the support they need.

Our development work also helps us to identify needs that aren't being met, help community groups to develop appropriate services, and to give support to isolated Black Carers in the community.
