NHS Dumfries & Galloway


This project was funded via the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Fund and administered by NHS Dumfries and Galloway Endowment Fund. COVID-19 highlighted the and exacerbated the inequalities that exist for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. NHS Dumfries and Galloway used the funds awarded to support the following aims:

  • Increase awareness within majority population of the positive contribution of ethnic minority communities.
  • Creating a culture where it is safe to talk about experience as a staff member from an ethnic minority community.
  • Increasing voices of ethnic minority communities and the listening capacity of the majority population.
  • Embedding equality and embracing diversity to improve organisational culture.
