Black, Asian and Mixed Ethnicities in Adoption and Fostering: an interview with CoramBAAF consultant Savita de Sousa

  • Date:

We spoke with Savita De Sousa, CoramBAAF consultant, on issues concerning Black, Asian and Mixed Ethnicities in Adoption and Fostering.

"Black, Asian and Mixed Ethnicities (BME) children are disproportionately represented in the ‘looked after’ system and are amongst the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. In England the Government is concerned about BME children in care: low rates of adoption, the ‘delay’ in finding suitable families, particularly for black boys, the rejection of ‘white’ families for BME children and ethnic matching."
