- To provide a learning and information service to help all Africans and Caribbeans to enrich the local community and provide seminars and organise discussions on a variety of health issues.
Tackle Social Exclusion.
Social exclusion profoundly affects people’s physical and mental health. This can also have a significant impact on an individual’s confidence and their motivation to engage fully with support services, preventing them from seizing opportunities to improve their quality of life.
Social exclusion contributes to disadvantage and can also lead to people being out of work. So rather than just treating the symptoms, projects must help to address the root causes of poverty and social exclusion that are barriers to an individual finding work.
