Abstract

A clearly presented set of practical materials to help practitioners working with Britain's marginalised and/or racialised families in need. Its principle aim is to provide a range of practical tools for practitioners to enhance their work in supporting black, minority ethnic and faith families. Underpinned by a theoretical framework based on the cultural competence model for care, the Toolkit outlines a holistic approach which addresses key considerations for improving service planning as well as the intervention process. It covers developments in social work theories, in particular the culturally competent family support model; and explores the meanings of culture, family, discrimination and working in partnership. It includes in-depth factsheets on the major religions and guidelines on communication, working with clients, and discrimination. As such it will be an invaluable practical guide for all those working with relevant families.
