Black Minority Ethnic (BME) issues in social care

The organisation I am founder director of, CPEA, has partnered with Savera, a specialist service which aims to offer consultancy and training on Black Minority Ethnic (BME) issues. Our assignments over the last dozen years have impressed on us time and again the importance of integrating black perspectives into all aspects of social care. It is only like this we can improve choices to the people, families, children, young people and communities we serve. Self evidently cultural awareness is integral to our offer on leadership and workforce development and in the nature of how we design, deliver and review services. We are pleased to be working to support Savera build their customer base and thought you might want to hear more...

This service has been set up by two BME workers, Imtiaz Khan and Kishwar Haque, who have extensive experience of working as social work practitioners (over 46 years between them). These specialists, if required, will work alongside other professionals to integrate black perspectives in the field of training and consultancy in relation to issues relating to BME children and families. The service will focus on Adoption and Fostering but can also offer consultancy on any BME issues that are required by statutory, voluntary or independent agencies.
