Protecting children from BME backgrounds is an increasingly pressing issue. The growing ‘diversity’ of the youth population, greater calls for inter-agency working, and the relative absence of ‘race’ in policy and guidance mean it’s important to understand what role ethnicity plays in decision making.
To help provide an overview of these issues, brap have produced ‘Child protection and BME communities’. A report of a conference held in May 2011, ‘Child protection and BME communities’ contains speeches from expert speakers, summaries of workshop discussions, and priorities for future action.
‘Child protection and BME communities’ is free to download.
