There are (at least) three ways in which BMER women are differentially connected with local authorities: they are more likely to access social welfare services provided by local authorities; they are more likely to be employed by local authorities as teachers, nurses and social workers, etc; and they are more likely to be subcontracted via private sector organisations (as care workers, cleaners, caterers, etc).
Before the crisis, BMER women's groups were already struggling to articulate their specificities and explain why specialist services are needed.
In the long run, this 1 percent decline is brought about by a 30 percent decline in the BMER.
