The below support groups were collectively created for parents raising a Black or Mixed-heritage child in predominantly White context to providing opportunities to reaffirm their racial and ethnic identities as a positive source of pride.

Racial and ethnic identities can play a crucial role in enabling Mixed and Black heritage children to overcome feelings such as isolation, low self-esteem but can also help to nurture cultural & racial pride and create a sense of belonging and acceptance that may not always be supported in their everyday life.

I am so proud to share the below spaces with you that families across Europe have come together to create ranging from formal organizations to informal groups.

This list aims to share some of the affinity groups that we are aware of by location and that you may wish to consider making use of. Of course, if you do not see one available where you live, you can always consider forming your own!
