This chapter examines the partnerships between black and ethnic minority voluntary organisations and local government in England as a way to challenge racism. It considers the stresses and strains in maintaining partnerships that are designed to bring about change or challenge oppression. The analyses of these types of partnerships reveal that black and minority ethnic voluntary organisations appear to have some of the tools required to provide an appropriate service and they have been able to earn the trust of their users.
