BritBanglaCovid has created this report to analyse the plight of Bangladeshis living in Britain. This community has experienced tragedies and unique difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the likes of which are unprecedented within current living generations. BritBanglCovid believes that this community needs protection by providing sufficient support and resources in its culture and language to prevent further isolation. Having explored the community through individual anecdotes via interviews and a survey, BritBanglaCovid was able to produce this report to protect the wellbeing of Bangladeshis in Britain.
1. Faster intervention by authorities in the language affected by minority communities to save lives.
2. Investment by authorities on specific language programmes to support vulnerable and excluded communities (beyond written word) such as use of spoken word voice recordings, telephone and face to face conversations because many Bangladeshis have no formal education or limited education.
3. Mental health of Bengali and other minority children need to be reviewed to reflect their cultural and language requirements.
4. A proactive approach to changing behaviour of some elderly Bangladeshi residents who have accepted that they are destined to die.
5. A campaign to remove the stigma of speaking about deaths related to Bangladeshis.
6. Support for Bangladeshis with free Will writing and other health packages by being especially sensitive to their cultural and language requirements.
