With an increase in racism due to Brexit as well as the illegal Windrush deportations, some Black people are considering their options to relocate to the Caribbean, but how easy is it? This interactive, illustrated talk will hear from those who have already relocated to Jamaica and Barbados. We will cover:
- Preparation and finances
- Getting a job or setting up your own business?
- Citizenship, passports and residency – what your options are
- Cultural contrasts: British style vs Caribbean style from a Black perspective
- How long does it take to prepare, how long to settle in?
- ‘ I did not really want to move but now I’m here…’
- 10 things to do before you move. 10 things to do when you arrive
- The relocation process
- My life here compared to UK
- Burning bridges or building options?
- House prices here and there – a realistic comparison
