Affinity Groups for Black and Mixed heritage children & families

Updated: May 28, 2023

The Affinity Group Resource List for Black and Mixed Heritage Children & Families


Providing Black and Mixed-heritage children with safe spaces in which to be around others who represent their racial & ethnic identities, can do wonders for their self-esteem, sense of belonging and positive self image.


Affinity groups, as these spaces are known, can help to combat feelings of isolation, promote self confidence, nurture cultural & racial pride, and engender a sense of belonging and acceptance that may not always be felt when growing up in predominantly White contexts, like the UK and Europe.


Over the decades, families of colour have come together across Europe to create these intentional spaces for children and families to connect in both formal and informal ways. This Affinity Group Resource List for Black and Mixed Heritage Children & Families aims to share some of the groups that exist today and that you may wish to tap into where you live:
