Support for Enterprising BAME Communities

Recent local research has identified the need to establish high quality business support to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) social businesses across Greater Manchester.  A briefing report for the research is available here. GMCVO in association with Greater Manchester BAME Network have accepted all the recommendations from the research.
