This report examines the experiences of black and minority ethnic families in Birmingham who are affected by learning disability. Gathering evidence through interviews with family carers and BME community organisations, the study highlights the difficulties experienced in accessing services, as well as the awareness and perceptions of Mencap's work, particularly after the appointment of a BME development worker.
