The multi-cultural nature of Liverpool is very evident. An influx of new and emerging BME communities coupled with a settled ‘traditional’ BME community has greatly changed the ethnic landscape of the city. The integration of these communities is an essential prerequisite to a healthy and vibrant city. However, little is known about the extent to which community cohesion exists at the neighbourhood level and how this can be supported by service providers. At the same time, the BME community has specific housing needs relating to their culture, customs and traditions and given the dynamism within this community, it is important to identify how these housing needs have changed over time. Equally important, is understanding why members of the BME community are less satisfied with their housing, neighbourhood and services generally than their White British counterparts. These three issues, community cohesion, housing needs and satisfaction levels are inextricably linked and represent a significant challenge for service providers. Liverpool City Council commissioned the Salford Housing and Urban Studies Unit at the University of Salford to undertake a project to examine these three issues. A review of existing secondary evidence and new empirical research was undertaken.
