This is an external report from Clinks, a registered charity.
The report pulls together information and research from a wide variety of sources. It shows that despite great strides to reduce racial inequalities, individuals from BME groups are over-represented at every stage of the CJS and face multiple layers of discrimination. Voluntary groups have a vital role to play in understanding, inspiring, supporting and providing essential services for BME groups that support those who are in conflict with the law. This report gives several examples of how a thriving voluntary and community sector can make a positive difference.
