Barriers to Belonging

Barriers to Belonging explores the causes of loneliness and obstacles to seeking help for people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.

The British Red Cross and Co-op commissioned this research from the Centre for Loneliness Studies at the University of Sheffield and the Runnymede Trust, a race equality think tank.

These findings draw on a survey of more than 950 people, predominantly from BAME backgrounds, as well as dozens of in-depth interviews.
