East London Pandemic PSP for Ethnic Minority Communities (priority setting in association with the JLA)
Ethnic minority communities in East London have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The East London Pandemic PSP for Ethnic Minority Communities aims to understand and highlight the needs of these communities in the pandemic recovery period and beyond. The PSP will work with community members, community organisations, community engagement teams, clinicians and academics to explore the lived experiences of East London ethnic minority communities and prioritise the needs that are the most important for research and community initiatives to address.
The initial question gathering survey opened in July 2021 and was aimed at people who identify as Black African, Black Caribbean, Somali, South Asian, Bangladeshi, and who live across East London, specifically those in Tower Hamlets, Newham or Waltham Forest.
