Breaking Stereotypes With Data: A Report on Mixed Race Children and Families in the UK. Published by People in Harmony

‘Breaking Stereotypes with Data’ is the first of its kind to deliver robust academic research with nuanced guidance and care from a mixed race community organisation. This report shows a contemporary view of the lived experiences of mixed race people and families, and calls upon government, health services, local government, public services and other organisations to improve their services and practices for mixed race children and families.

The results confront and disprove any lingering negative stereotypes of mixed race children and families. Previous social research and the new interviews show us that negative perceptions still exist and have a measure of impact on mixed race families. Yet analysis of these data show that there is no basis to these stereotypes, specifically that mixed race children are ‘mixed up’, or that parents of mixed race children place them at a disadvantage.

Therefore, the report is ‘breaking stereotypes with data’, concluding that the lives of mixed race children and families are far more complex than stereotypes would have us believe.
