How can I be an ally?

We are often asked by young people, fundraisers and corporates how they can support the Black community. Anyone who wants to create societal change can become an ally.

What is an ally? Here’s our definition:

Ally: Someone who makes the commitment and effort to recognise their privilege, and acts in solidarity with oppressed groups in the struggle for justice. Allies understand that it is in their own interest to end all forms of oppression, even those from which they may benefit in concrete ways. An ally is someone who uses their privilege to support the rights of the marginalised.

Allyship: An informed, consistent, and empathetic practice to uphold a culture of inclusion.

We, therefore, all have a part to play in creating sustainable change. Click below for the different steps you can take towards becoming an ally.
