The Zeena Ralph Memorial Fund was established in 1995 to promote research and dialogue into mixed-race issues which are relevant in society, both nationally or internationally.
Within the limits of its resources (it is supported by private means), the fund has four main objectives: to build up practitioner materials, to set up a research and teaching post, to develop full time research in this field, and to hold conferences on mixed-race issues.
The fund aims to use such research and dialogue to inform and influence policy and practice in the organisations that have a direct contact with mixed-race individuals and groups. Within this aim the Fund will raise the needs and issues that must be addressed for this group and will also promote the positive aspects of being mixed-race. It is actively supported by the Institute of Education.
