brap have been commissioned to undertake mapping and scoping surveys on a variety of different topics for a range of different organisations.
Engaging with over 300 people, brap mapped engagement initiatives used by public and community sector organisations to involve older black and minority ethnic (BME) people in decision making. The findings were used to develop practical recommendations on how engagement could be developed to become more inclusive.
Conducting interviews with nearly 80 local authorities in England, brap identified the extent to which funding patterns for voluntary and community organisations have changed over the last few years. The final report consolidated commissioning best practice from across the country.
