This chapter describes families from a minority ethnic background that moved into these neighbourhoods and the barriers they faced in trying to integrate their families into the community. It notes that the four families in this chapter come from very different backgrounds — South America, the Middle East, East Africa, and India. It observes that all four mothers hanker after the more supportive, community-oriented environment they knew as children. It further observes that the biggest threat they encounter is not hostility from the existing community, but the instability and uncertainties of the neighbourhoods where they live.

Keywords:   minority ethnic background, neighbourhoods, families, community, South America, Middle East, East Africa, community-oriented environment, instability
