Cancer Resource Centre Campaign


In February 2018, BME Cancer Communities and Can-Survive UK were commissioned by Genomics England (GE) to work in partnership to authentically gather information about Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) viewpoints regarding the 100,000 Genomes Project by: organising and delivering 9 BME focus groups;

running a media awareness raising activity with two urban radio stations in Manchester and Nottingham and recruiting BME community members with a family history of cancer and rare conditions for personal interviews. The primary target were Black African-Caribbean and Black African communities as these are likely to be aware of or participate in the 100,000 Genomes Project. We completed the project in May 2018 and GE has published the report in the library and resources section of their websitte.
