Rainbow Office Locations

The office locations will be stable for the 5-year duration of the project. For the first 2 years we will target nearby areas, in the context of beneficiaries, as indicated below. There will be a review after 2 years to determine the next target beneficiary areas. During the 5 years, our work will fan out in order to cover all areas within the 9 regions of England.

Please note that from experience of working with ethnic groups, they are quite happy to go up to 2 hours each way on a day trip. There will also be residential trips. We expect that beneficiaries will in fact go beyond the region they are in and sometimes right across the country to key sites that are particularly inspirational.

The fact that ethnic minorities do not access many destinations at the moment is due to a continuing situation of lack of funds and transport. Many groups are very disadvantaged. Trips will be infrequent and very special for them, so this does not take them into a scenario of contributing to overuse of transport.
