If people don’t think they have the power to solve their problems, they won’t even think about how to solve them.
Saul D. Alinsky,
We are engaged in a concerted effort to unlock the huge reserves of human capital currently underutilised in deprived Black communities across the UK, which includes working with statutory bodies to more appropriately commission services from those within Black communities who are better placed to meet their community’s needs.
Our immediate focus is on promoting this paradigm shift in thinking, whilst building economic capacity within communities to more effectively respond to the challenges they face in what will be an increasingly polarised environment. We aim to do this by following the core principles of social action and by the provision of ongoing training and human resource support that facilitates that change.
