The Manchester BME Network is undertaking a piece of research to better understand how the engagement of its members (and the wider BME sector) with infrastructure services in the city can be improved. This research has been commissioned by Manchester Alliance for Community Care (MACC). MACC runs the Manchester Community Central service, which provides information and support to build the capacity and sustainability of voluntary and community sector groups in Manchester.
If you are a BME (black and minority ethnic) organisation or group operating in Manchester (including refugee community organisations), this is your opportunity to shape the capacity building and infrastructure services you receive currently and would like to receive in the future.
The survey will take no more than 8 minutes to complete.
• Please respond to Survey 1 if you have used the basic or in-depth support services from Manchester Community Central before
• Please respond to Survey 2 if you are a casual user of these services (e.g. you receive the Manchester Community Central bulletin or have visited the website but have not made a direct request for support), or if you have not used these services before.
Simply open the survey, answer the questions, save the file, and return it via email attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would prefer to respond to these questions by phone, contact 0781 153 1160, or email: email@example.com to arrange a suitable time.
All respondents will be entered into a prize draw. The winning organisation will be offered two free training places (worth up to £35 per place).
