Abstract

An investigation of the circumstances, needs, views and experiences of black young people with caring responsibilities. This report is the result of a pioneering, collaborative study by Manchester Metropolitan University and the Bibini Centre for Young People, which fully engaged young black people in the research process. It investigates the circumstances, needs, views and experiences of black young people with caring responsibilities, although its findings are also relevant to families from other communities. It highlights significant gaps in service provision and makes recommendations to improve services. The report: highlights the inappropriate nature of many services currently available to black young people and their families; provides a critical analysis of key studies; explores young people’s experiences from a black perspective; identifies areas of development and good practice in the light of Quality Protects and Best Value initiatives; celebrates the diversity, resources and strengths of black young families.
