  • This book is an attempt to chart progress in the development of support for black carers around the country and the factors which can inhibit this process, including racism; lack of joint work between health and social services and voluntary organisations; not taking the issue of black carers seriously; and competition between black organisations for funding priorities. It also acknowledges the many black carers' initiatives existing in different parts of Britain and considers lessons learned which will help others interested in developing services for black carers. It draws on the work of the King's Fund Development Centre which has taken a lead role in developing support for black carers through its service development initiatives and publications. It also draws on the achievements of other organisations throughout Britain, many of which have shared information and ideas through the National Black Carers Forum convened by the King's Fund Development Centre.
