Inequality and social injustices in today’s society are issues that most communities or ethnic culture or races face globally. This issue has drawn the attention of most global bodies like the UNESCO to help in tackling the uncertainty caused by these issues in the society by developing and building network of municipalities across the world continents in order to promote and protect human right and fight racism through coordination and shared responsibility among individuals of different races, ethnic groups or different cultural backgrounds. Additionally, it is necessary to eradicate the belief that one group is better than another group based on their race or color. Another way to discourage racism in the society is through ant-oppressive social work that should be spread on in different social classes across a wide range in the communities in order to promote equity and justices among people of different social classes, races, color or even ethnic backgrounds.
Lastly, this work is based on social welfare by critically analyzing its significance on development and provision of social care, concept of diversity in social welfare and its importance in ensuring social welfare. Impact of the presence of black minority and ethnic workers on the social welfare and how they have made to achieve racial equality and in conclusion, this work also elaborate the experience of blacks, Asians and minority ethnic individuals’ seekers in criminal justice system with reference to one or more areas of social welfare provision.
Significance of Anti-racism on Development and Provision of Social Care
According to the Anti-racism digital library, anti-racism is a form of focused and sustained actions which includes inter-cultural, inter-faith, multi-lingual and inter-abled communities with the intent to change a system or institutional policies, practices or procedures which has racist effects.
By analyzing the social and historical dynamic of authority and privileges, we come to understand that few people in the society usually reach adulthood without actually internalizing social hierarchy that tend to shape our unconscious perceptions of one another but it is also important for someone to become aware of the possibilities for change and resistance in order to understand and have a sense of success of communities in relation to their color for their efforts to fight against racism.
Anti-racism has aided in overcoming the racial division that hinders effective problem solving and progressive movements among individuals in the society. Through the development and implementation of anti-racism action in the world continents at large, organization and people at work has now successfully challenged the policies and practices that mask power, exploitations discrimination and resource grabbing that hinders development and social welfare in the community.
Concept of Racism and Ethnicity in Relation Social Welfare
Most communities and societies work professionals operates in different racialized and psychological environs, racism that has been a major factor that is currently associated with outcome such as stigmatization, substance mistreat and limited access to public services. However, members of racial groups tend to develop collectively shared value systems, behavioral treats and standards of living.
Majority of the social professionals and society depends on the concept of acquired education and mistreat among individual at the work set-up or any social ground. According to Joseph Anderson and Robin Wiggins (2004) in their journal of sociology and social welfare, they have clearly identified that the skills that social worker needs to possess is the competency in relation to culture in social welfare perspective. Additionally, there are some necessities that people in different social backgrounds and employees in the field of research should recognize so that the experience of the racial population in relation to their social welfare perceptions.
According to this, there are some misunderstanding about the concepts of ethnicity and racism accorded to social welfare on the layout and in the passing on of the values that accrue on cultural interchange of knowledge and ideologies among people in the society and at the same time there is also a movement that inhibits the understanding of diversity among individuals. This notion has extended beyond the ethnicity to cover any number of differing life experience among people in the society. However, practice skills have developed from a dependence of knowing cultural facets to learning how to understand and master these facets.
The value of social welfare lies on the concept of ethno-cultural perspectives that aims at sensitizing social workers to the relationship between ethnicity and culture, oppressive concept that explore on the effects of prejudice and power, the vulnerable life situations that considers how organizations can learn from clients about the impact of different vulnerabilities and strengths and lastly, the strength and empowerment concept that examine how people and top managers can strengthen the relationship among different ethnic groups and at the same time empowers them to strong relationship of ethnicity and culture.
In addition, there are some fundamental principle that supports the social welfare among all walks of life like the education principle, honor diversity of various cultural values. In relation to this, managers of various organization are required to exchange their norms from multi-dimensional landscape of religion, disability and mistreats of extended worries to inhibits and undermines the drawbacks.
Vern Pitt (2009) has also elaborated on the consequences the social work reform council is facing in relation to diversity and decent with central experts in focus of social work indicators and practices that are not comprehensible for the social work reform committee. He furthers opines that social experts should continue to ensure well training procedure when dealing with clients from various social groups including people entering humanized management because personalities are underestimated since some of the notable results have been rejected and criticized due to age, sexual orientation, race and varying social classes. These have presented social functions that are closer to diversity understanding to enable them learn and master various concepts in different meeting set-ups.
Currently, according to new professional capabilities framework in UK, there are nine coverage areas that depicts the unpredictable practices and understanding that are expected from employees and clients for example, the third and the fourth regions demands that the social workers to understand and comply with the ethics of the social works and be keen to the cooperation of various networks and meetings so in order to be aware and have no fear of the work because the concept of righteousness and justice. Working in these areas requires one to acknowledge the discussion and subjects of different structures, problems associated to it because we live in social and political life of various occasions. This is really of great importance due to the coded languages of the race differences.
Finally, social welfare has great impact of helping ethnic minority networks mostly the paranoid and communication centers, diverse and discriminatory, this has fallen the fear of right injustices. Change of behaviors, attitudes and ways of living among individuals is still a conflicting manner in which financial globalization and prosperity, distinctions and good rebuilding of various governments come together to work in social work (Ferguson and Lavallette, 1999; Leonard, and Rayport, 1997). From this ideological perspective, change in attitudes, behaviors and standard of living due to enlighten by modern world innovations that has evolved into a regulation and a wider variety of related legal issues, a commitment to individual rights leaving behind advancement in the management of service-user diversity.
Within social work difference related to class, race or sexual orientation has help to highlight the various management clients. Therefore, people working in societies are affected by complicated factors related to race as social outcomes and how the social need of people can meet their social welfare brings a lot of concerns about cultural competencies that have promoted progress to work with a small number of networks in the world. (Harrison and Burke, 2006). The hardest prejudice is the conversion of religion and the daily social work.
Knowledge and Understanding of These Concepts, Economically, Politically and Sociologically
Most of the European continents at times give hand too child abuse within their borders. According to Peter Selman (2004), an expert on multi-national elections at the University of Newcastle put it out that youths are being favored and protected from international acclaim. These has raised a lot of challenges that includes formulation. Another concern is that a mother can be entitled to any prenatal health care services before delivery and even if she is a young semi-home, at times she may be affected by delays in regard to the services. Another problem is on the cost of global grants that includes more paperwork higher as compared to the cost of housing.
In addition, at some point the child may be unable to follow the world’s protector to better or more regret because they are not able to have a baby as a result of larger reception process but they can use children for a duration ranging between three months to one year old. If one is also found of adopting a child, he or she must fight a language barrier so in order to be successful.
Black and Minority
The black and minority ethnics are more than twenty-five thousand and they mostly found in the Caribbean, South Asia, England and parts of Africa at large. For example, factors such as vascular risk factor have been evident among the black and ethnic minority individuals with dementia in the United Kingdom states. Other ethnic groups, such as the Jews and Irish, have a demographically a population that is mature and so forms a link between age and dementia that result to higher prevalence.
In addition, some minority populations including the blacks tend to oppose the commitment put forward by the humanitarian and social service management sections because they fear isolation that will present a problem beyond their control. A good example is evident among people where mature individuals claim that they are against their relatives will form part of the membership network and as a result they will just have to take life the way it is. As a result, it is therefore evident that delaying calls for help and assistance may mean that the person will be restricted not to communicate their need with the competent authority unless the disease progresses or a crisis hits the family
Asylum is regarded as the protection to an individual who has left their home country as a political refuge, granted by the state they are seeking refuge from. Race is not set by the laws as an essential. In such cases the past presents a legal shelter and the people under the application can be noted and identified as well as being involved in the ethnic party, regulated to avoid being victimized. As a result, the improvements on sections such as nationality and race tend to be not clearly defined.
Racial mistreat does not necessarily require such unrestrained structure to stimulate refuge or evacuation of insurance because it can also lead to mistreatments of other people entitled for housing rescuers in an event of racial pressure, racial separatism and ideology even for basically needed social equality, for instance, the privilege of voting tend to be the identification of the basic denial that people are exposed to on their human rights in the identity (Fisher, 2003).
In asylum cases, oppressive related to social groups should major in creating a causative relationship among racial personality and abuse. In some situations, like in the case of a public endeavor, it is astonishingly hard to turn up that those unceasing funny remarks are not a fortuity. Additionally, as a law, the nature of the collection requires someone who can portrays the consequences or guarantee shelter, this attribute only seen in the eyes of the oppressors but it is still a contentious and varies from different classes such as race and religion that distinguish the evidence that can be focused anymore.
Community anti-racist can support employees who need specific social learning, people and families in a given network to avoid racism at a given point of social interaction
In addition, a number of stabilization measures are necessary to prevent minorities from entering the need for care and to take urgent measures to actually investigate possible changes, including custody, long-term child care and family relations as a permanent legal choice to improve social welfare.
