Abstract

There is a shortage of examples of arrangements and practice approaches that focus on mental wellbeing

in black and minority ethnic (BME) older people. This article draws on our practice enquiry1,

which brought together accounts of social care practice across different types of social care settings

from four parts of the UK, away from the areas of high demographic concentration that have been

the focus of most previous research. Over 80 practitioners, managers, older people and carers were

interviewed over 2009–2010. They described and reflected on the support for older people from

BME backgrounds, particularly focusing on how they might promote mental well-being.
