BMHS Urges Welsh Economy Minister to Act Now on “Brain Drain Crises" in Wales


📆 TODAY ‼ Sunday 20 February is UN #WorldDayofSocialJustice when we highlight issues of poverty, gender equality, and exclusion


⚖️ This year’s theme is ‘Achieving Social Justice through Formal Employment’


Alfred Oyekoya, Director BAME Mental Health Support-BMHS, spoke to ITV Wales on the Brain Drain Crises in Wales, he said “Human Capital flight or brain drain is one of the least spoken crises in Wales.


Our landscape may be the envy of the world, but employment opportunities are limited for many.

It is imperative that a strong Welsh recovery is based on the principles of fair work and sustainability because to be a Nation of Sanctuary without a parallel economic prosperity strategy to match that ambition is an illusion and not sustainable in the long run”

The proportion of the population aged 16 to 64years old in Wales has significantly decreased over the years.


We need progressive economic policy that will focus on jobs, narrowing skills divide and also tackle poverty and remove barriers to employment.
