Report shows racism is a 'significant issue'

This research sadly shows that racism is a significant issue affecting the lives of people from ethnic minority backgrounds living in Wales, a significant proportion of which has personally experienced racism, as have their friends and family members.

Whilst some of these negative experiences are associated with illegal discrimination by service providers and public authorities, much takes places at school, in places of work, out shopping, on the bus, in shops and in some (particularly poorer and less ethnically diverse) neighbourhoods. These experiences of 'everyday racism' are painful and deeply affect the ability of individuals and families to go about their lives.
