Black and Minority Ethnic Children and Young People

The Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership oversees a number of Northern Ireland sub-groups established to take forward integrated planning on a Northern Ireland wide basis, including a Sub-Group on Black and Minority Ethnic Children and Young People.

Black & Minority Ethnic Children & Young People are defined as:

‘Children and young persons aged up to 18 years who live in settled Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities, Travellers, Roma, refugees, asylum seekers, migrant worker communities (including undocumented people), unaccompanied children and children of mixed parentage. The term ‘settled’ in the above context means communities which have been in Northern Ireland for some decades, in contrast to migrant worker communities, which are more recently established.’
