Who are BAME people?

Black And Minority Ethnic groups

The term ‘BAME’ communities refer to groups of people who may be distinct because of their skin colour, race, language, culture or religion. Many people from BAME communities are disadvantaged and often face discrimination due to their distinct nature. 

45% of the total BAME population in the UK lives in London. Examples of BAME groups include: Black Africans and Caribbeans, Asians, Gypsies and Travellers, Refugees and Asylum Seekers, Mixed Race People and Eastern Europeans.


Access to services by BAME communities:

Like everyone else, members of BAME communities have a right to timely and appropriate health and social care services. However people from BAME communities may face difficulties in accessing services due to barriers such as:

  • Language problems — English is not a first language for most BAME people. Please ask GPs for an interpreter if you, or a loved one, are unable to communicate well in English.
  • Stigma — Most people fail to talk about mental health problems because they fear being misunderstood. It is important to remember that health problems will often get worse when we fail to address them. With regards to Dementia, it is important to support family members or friends who present symptoms of Dementia and to help them overcome the fear of seeking help.
  • Lack of information — For more information around Dementia and services, talk to your GP, contact service providers mentioned in this booklet or talk to your community leaders.

Why should dementia be a concern for BAME communities in Kingston?

  • Approximately 20% of Kingston residents are BAME people
  • Approximately 1,400 people in Kingston are living with Dementia
  • Members of BAME communities are under-represented in existing health and social care services leading to disparities in health outcomes and poor quality of life
