Developing the infrastructure of the black voluntary and community sector, VAJ 2004 (vol 6, number 3)

Black-self help in Britain has a long history. New immigrants in the 1950s had to look to themselves to develop social initiatives and this article highlights a broad range of self-help enterprises. The article goes on to discuss why Black self help has not attracted funding to develop an infrastructure to support it, before arguing that more strategies are needed based on funding good practice typified by surviving self-help groups; the strengthening of umbrella groups for the black and minority ethnic voluntary sector at all levels; an independent black think tank supplying reliable information about the grass roots and the developing of management structures within black groups to ensure high standards and accountability.
