BME Groups?

Report content

I would like to know if there are any Black African / Carribean Groups for adopters, in West Midlands where meetings take place to share experiences etc. The reason for asking we live in a predominately white area. I feel it is really important my DSs and myself meet other families who have had similar experiences & reflects our culture.

I don't know of any specific BME groups in the West Mids - but it is a really good idea. It might be worth ringing the nearest local authority adoption agency to you, even if they weren't involved in your placement. The west mids authorities are in a consortium with several voluntary agencies and will know about support groups in the area.

AUK may also know about local groups.

If all else fails consider starting your own group , a nearby childrens centre may be able to provide a cheapish venue.

Good luck
