This paper draws on research with three minority ethnic community groups in Manchester. The aim of the study was to examine and prioritise social care needs. Focus groups were chosen as a way of beginning discussion about these issues. The findings suggest that some quality issues are relevant to all communities of older people. However, some were specific to the community groups. This paper describes some of the lessons learned about running focus groups with people whose first language is not English and suggests some considerations for future research.
