Racial Equity

Working through the ‘lens of racial justice’ (as defined by the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity), our commitment spans:

Understanding and acknowledging racial history: Through exploratory learning programmes, mentoring and therapeutic work, we explore with our beneficiaries their histories (including racial injustice) and those of local and wider Black and Minority Ethnicity (BAME) communities.

Creating a shared affirmative vision of a fair and inclusive society: We work to reduce the opportunities gap and systemic racism evident through society. We focus on partnership working with diverse stakeholders to help young people and their families navigate racial inequalities and access meaningful opportunities.

Focus exclusively on building civic, cultural and political power by those most impacted: We focus on empowering the most marginalised young people and families by building strong peer, role model and support networks and creating meaningful development opportunities. Our partnerships offer progression routes, cultivate community cohesion and civic participation.

Emphasizes transformative solutions that impact multiple systems: We build power through individual and community transformation and resilience building, together with strong partnership work across statutory, community and corporate sectors; through which skills, voice amplification and change can be exercised.
