Research shows that women from ethnic minority groups have difficulty in accessing mainstream services even when they view Scotland as home. Part of the reasons is that for some, their first language is not English; making it may harder for them to understand the systems of support available or to access appropriate sources of help. Our own involvement with Ethnic minority groups is that women especially are unaware of support services and not know where to go. As an organisation that is passionate about equalities of opportunities, we are keen to continue supporting BME women and help them integrate into Edinburgh and the Lothians.
