Invitation of expression of interest: The multifaceted needs of Pakistani communities: Manchester Insights

1 Feb 2024 - 10:29 by michelle.foster

Community Health Equity Manchester (CHEM) was initially set up to address the disproportionate impact the pandemic had on specific communities in Manchester, including communities impacted by racial inequalities, disabled people, and inclusion health groups. The programme has been successful in engaging with and building trust with communities and is being developed to address the wider health inequalities that these groups face. manchester city council

Working with and listening to communities, CHEM aims to address and tackle health inequalities for marginalised communities across the city of Manchester through its infrastructure for building trust, advocacy, and amplifying community voice. CHEM also has a role in enabling the Making Manchester Fairer Action Plan.

Manchester is home to vibrant and diverse Pakistani communities comprising people from various regions, cultures, and backgrounds. The Pakistani population is the largest ethnic group in Manchester after the White British population. The proportion of residents identifying as Pakistani has increased from 8.5% in 2011 census to 11.9% in 2021 census. This is an equivalent to an increase of almost 23,000 people.

Due to growth of this community in the city, Manchester City Council are looking to commission an organisation or consortium to gather data and insights to help us better understand the Pakistani communities of Manchester. This research will provide insight into the clustering of the Pakistani population in specific areas based on historical settlement patterns and social networks, reflecting variations in demographics. In addition, it will help us to better understand distinct community dynamics in neighbourhoods and the roles of community organisations and places of worship in these areas. This research will guide future culturally competent initiatives and services that are designed to meet the needs of these communities.

Maximum funding allocation: £25,000 (excluding VAT).
