What We Do

The main focus of QED’s work is to enable and support mainstream organisations and ethnic minority communities to work more effectively to address the root causes of poverty and disadvantage.

QED also plays a key role in developing and managing social enterprises that deliver services in education, training, employment and health that reach most disadvantaged communities.
