It is a sad fact that some sections of society are more disadvantaged than others. This is why we target our work in what are statistically some of the most deprived areas of the country, working closely with those traditionally seen as hard-to-reach e.g. Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, refugees, asylum seekers, young people not in employment, education or training (NEET), offenders and others.
Women and young people are often not given the priority they need, particularly within certain communities, so as an organisation we dedicate our resources to work with them.
For many of these individuals and communities, there are usually multiple problems affecting their access to opportunities such as lack of adequate educational attainment or poor health. Thus we focus our project development and delivery across the following themes:
As a grassroots organisation, we are fortunate enough to be able to see the impact our work has on our members, their lives and society at large. Our members are more than just statistics to us, they are individuals - each with their own story to tell and each with the potential make a difference.
