The endless and recurrent nature of community regeneration is of massive concern to any government due to the financial and human resources requested. Past research has suggested that by involving members of the community in the process of these regeneration activities, past mistakes can be alleviated and so people will feel better appreciated. However, members of the BME groups which make up to 12 per cent of the UK population are not participating optimally. This paper aims to look into the reasons for this lack of participation and make suggestions accordingly.
