Here are the organisations we are supporting!!!!!!!!!

Positive Role Models - - We use bespoke projects, the power of sport & mentoring to empowering disadvantaged young people to be successful in education & life. Trying to solve the problem of youth violence, low-self-esteem, poor education, poor physical health, poor mental health and holiday hunger.

Project Zero WF CIC - - Engaging Young people in positive activities to promote social inclusion.

Prosper Life Initiatives CIC - - Prosper works with BME women, over 90% are Black originally from Africa. We work with them to address issues and overcome barriers to progression in their financial and general well-being. One key area is supporting them to improve their financial capability as this largely impacts families and communities.

Sister System - - Our mission is to bridge the gap between care affected BAME girls and mainstream society, working alongside them ensuring the same opportunities everyone else has at home, school, work and in our communities. Each 6-12 month co-curated programme includes self-development workshops, accredited qualifications, peer mentoring, therapy and career coaching.

STEP NOW - - We work with young people from deprived backgrounds offering services such as workshop programmes and mentoring based on life skills awareness. We are trying to transmute the stigma of people from these backgrounds turning to a life of crime and instead of pushing them to fulfil their full potential.

Support and Action for Women Network (SAWN) - - Our organisation supports Black African women by empowering them to become key players in issues and decision contributors about their own lives. We run projects that are beneficiary led that have the needs and solutions for first-generation immigrants in the UK based in Greater Manchester.

Carers4Carers - - We are holistic wellbeing specialists supporting carers and their families. We seek to address health inequalities faced by young and adult carers by offering high-quality services that reduce loneliness and isolation and positively impact on their physical, emotional, social and financial wellbeing.

Eloquent Praise and Empowerment Dance Company - - Our organisation supports young people to become the best version of themselves through the use of the performing arts. We provide opportunities for young people to explore and develop their gifts and talents whilst increasing their character development. The problem we are trying to solve is to keep young people so engaged with the arts and immersed in the opportunities they are provided with that soar in their purpose and do not become entangled in youth crime and gang violence.

Equality 4 Black Nurses - - Our Nurse-led organisation has been developed In light of Covid-19 and the way it disproportionately and adversely affects Black nurses in the UK due to racism and discrimination. Our aim is to bring positive change by lobbying employers/government to reduce and eradicate racial discrimination.

The Sapphire Foundation - - Empowering, Inspiring, Training, Mentoring, Motivating and Educating young people aged 10 to 30 years old through Literature, Events, Media and Programmes. We are building and equipping the next generation of leaders.

African Caribbean Medical Mentors - - Recent events have demonstrated the importance of a diverse healthcare sector in ensuring every patient feels seen and represented. ACMM encourages black people to aim high by providing free mentoring, outreach, events and application preparation for our future and current African and Caribbean doctors and dentists.

African French Speaking Community Support - - Support mainly people from the French-speaking countries of African living in Birmingham and the Black Country with a range of services, such as homework club, digital technologies, befriending, sports and leisure activities, training, welfare services, job coaching, information and signposting.

Autism Voice - - We work to end stigma and discrimination attached to autism in the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Community in South London. We hope to change perception, ensure autistic people are recognised and accepted.

Black British Professionals in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (BBSTEM) - - We are a nonprofit organisation that aims to encourage and energise individuals in business, industry, and education to widen participation and contribution of Black individuals in STEM. Our long- term goal is to have Black parity in the UK’s STEM workforce, from school to the highest level in the industry.

Blossom Foundation - - Our aim at Blossom Foundation is to Educate, Inspire & Empower the BME Black African girls in the age group of 10-20 through their transitional stages of becoming a full-blown adult. This is so that we can identify issues from an early stage and intervene to make corrections to help them be the best they can be in all life aspects be it social, physical, emotional and economic wellbeing.

Care Link West Midlands - - We provide community support services to most vulnerable and disadvantaged BME people especially French-speaking refugees and migrants in the community.
