There are now a considerable proportion of children living in Britain who belong to ethnic minority groups and who differ ethnically and culturally from the majority population. However, there is a dearth of research/literature on the development of ethnic minority children in social work textbooks and professional journals. Social work texts on childcare make little reference to culture. For example, the only reference to culture in Hill and Aldgate’s (1996) text is a warning that ‘a stance of cultural pluralism may oversimplify complex issues’ (p. 115).
