Invitation to participate in research

The research team is looking for participants for the study: children and young people (aged 14 to 19) who are from a minoritised ethnic group (Black, Asian and mixed heritage). By minoritised, we mean someone who is either BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) or BME (Black and Minority Ethnic), including those of complex ethnic identities and/or biracial. The research team is interested in hearing their perspectives on ethnicity, religion and identity, the research outcomes will inform multiple social care stakeholders about how they can best meet children’s needs.
