Last year, Blueprint for All commissioned ground-breaking research with over 500 young adults on how they define themselves and their sense of belonging. This was launched at a particularly a pertinent time in the UK, following a year of deep reflection from all corners of UK society, due to the catalyst for change began by the murder of George Floyd. The purpose of the research was to understand what young adults think about the language used to describe their Ethnic Heritage, and how cultural and racial descriptors make them feel. The survey revealed that the majority are uncomfortable with a range of terms commonly used.
Blueprint for All are pleased to announce that as part of their Black History Month programme, we are launching a new report ‘We Belong Here’ which further explores the voice of the young people we work with that has been missing from national conversations about identity, race, and belonging.
