News from Ageing Better in Camden
Ageing Better in Camden reaching out to older Black, Asian, and minority ethnic people in Camden
Call for Expression of Interest for Consultancy for capacity building and support to prepare for new BAME Community Action project for ageing Better in Camden
The contract is worth £10k and the closing date is 24th January 2017 for 8th February 2017 start.
Camden’s diverse communities are at the heart of the Ageing Better in Camden approach. However after the first two years of the programme concerns were raised by the VCS BAME community that within the programme the opportunities and resources for significant work with BAME groups were very limited. Ageing Better in Camden has commissioned a larger project with the older Bangladeshi Community which runs from October 2017 –March 2021 and other opportunities were limited to smaller funds from the Community Activities Fund which is currently out to tender and will run from April 2018.
In response to the concerns raised the Ageing Better in Camden Strategic Board has agreed to establish a community action fund specifically targeted for work with the BAME community, and delivered through the BAME VCS.
