Co-POWeR: Consortium on Practices of Well-being and Resilience in BAME Families and Communities


“Two viruses – COVID-19 and racial discrimination – are currently killing in the UK”

(Solanke, 2020)

The impact of these viruses cause long-term poor outcomes especially within BAMEFC who are hardest hit. Survivors face ongoing damage to well-being and resilience, in terms of physical and mental health as well as social, cultural and economic (non-medical) consequences. Co-POWeR investigates their combined impact on practices for well-being and resilience across BAMEFC in the UK to create an holistic idea of vulnerabilities damaging BAMEFC.

  • BAMEFC – Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic families and communities
  • We acknowledge the wide debate on the use of the acronym BAME
