BME Housing Consortium

The BME Housing Consortium was formed to develop a Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Housing Strategy aimed at promoting race equality and ensuring that all BME communities in Wolverhampton have equal access to housing, health and social care services.

They delivered the “C-limate-ATOSTROPHE” project in 2022 to explain how the climate crisis is increasing the frequency, intensity and impact of extreme weather events and the enormous threats they pose.





Charity MBS (MindBodyandSoul) exists to support the mental health of ethnic minority communities in the UK and is a registered charity in Liverpool.

They received two Community Grants respectively in 2021 and 2020 and used the fund to support seed germination activity and baking soda balloon activity that increase family engagement and children’s outdoor experience during Covid-19, so as to improve their mental well-being.
