    The advising black and minority ethnic (BME) communities project aims to support those working with both existing and new BME communities - including migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers - to maximize potential income available through the benefits and tax credits system for families and individuals at the risk of poverty.

    This project provides a range of training, information, a quarterly ebulletin and support for organisations and those working with BME groups.
