    hi am a single dad of four black English with mixed white children I will be moving to sa1 from London sw15 I am throwing myself to a new way of life and to give my kids a different influence as my son of 15 is living with his mum and selling drugs with his mother's boyfriend. I do not want the same for my other kids so want a fresh start. I don't speak Welsh and hope me and my children would be welcomed in Swansea. I just want to know if we would be looked at as aliens lol and if i would live a peaceful life with no racism especially being black English carribean and my two boys and two girls mixed white. I care nothing if there's black people around just as long as I feel welcomed and my kids have a good influence in their life's. I just want the best for them and me and will do the same for my fellow neighborhood and people of Swansea. I hope you can give me some insights. thank you for your post and for listening.

    nathan80 : thanks for replying.

    I will need to give this some thought.

    Any answer I try and give will inevitably be complicated, being a former-London-dwelling incomer myself.

    However, you will very likely find that Swansea is great for schools and kids and family-friendly atmosphere (apologies for not knowing too much beyond that -- we're just a no-kids couple with 2 cats and a campervan here :D :oops: )

    Be aware that there are very few non-white people in Swansea, to an extreme extent compared to some similarly-sized UK cities. I doubt there'd be many (hopefully no) problems for you, and I hope not -- see the schools, etc point above.

    But 'the not too many BME folk about' point, which is obvious every time we go out, will definitely be a culture-shock from London! Even we find that, and we go to Bristol/Cardiff a lot too, where the contrast is far less apparant..

    Good luck with it all though, and I promise to try and reply some more when I've had more time to think about it properly :)
