Supporting communities

We run programmes that support community groups working with people from BAME backgrounds to maximise their impact and make positive changes for local people.

Our BME Network supports over 120 small voluntary and community groups, and our Community Leadership Academy provides learning and development tailored to the needs of small and micro charities that are led by or serve people from BAME backgrounds. In partnership with other national and local charities, our Love Sex Life project challenges inequalities in access to and provision of sexual health services for BAME communities in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham.
