This chapter determines how voluntary and community organisations facilitate access to the labour market for minority ethnic women at high risk of exclusion. Its central is the relationship between minority ethnic women and employment in North West England. The analysis is based on several case studies, which were constructed from interviews with project staff across a number of community projects in West Yorkshire and North West England. Some of the ‘promising practices’ that have become evident are outlined in the chapter as well.
