A new briefing from the Runnymede Trust and the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), explores why Covid has had such a devastating impact on our older ethnic minority population. In this webinar we will discuss some key points from the briefing:

  • Older ethnic minority people are more exposed to the virus, and to longstanding inequalities in housing, health, employment and resources, all exacerbated by the pandemic.
  • The loss of social spaces, lack of digital access for some, coupled with language barriers for others, has hindered their ability to maintain social connections and access resources and information.
  • Vaccine hesitancy is much more complex than painted in the media.

We will be joined by an expert panel:

Tracey Bignall, Senior Policy and Practice Officer at the Race Equality Foundation

Dr Brenda Hayanga, research fellow at the University of Sussex

Shane Ward, CEO of the West Bromwich African Caribbean Resource Centre

The event will be chaired by Dr Dharmi Kapadia.
