Who we are
We help to improve the lives of BAME disabled children/young people and their families by breaking down barriers which prevent families from accessing social, educational, economic, health, and wellbeing provisions available, have their voices heard, and their needs met. As a result, families feel less isolated, with increased self-esteem and self-worth, building stronger and healthier families who are connected, empowered with knowledge and skills, able to navigate the system for themselves, with improved mental health and wellbeing.
What we do
✓ To provide an open door for BME parents/cares and mainstream families to come together and share their stories, experiences, and skills in supporting each other.
✓ To provide an equal opportunity for BME families to voice their concerns and have their needs met.
✓ To engage families in social, educational, health, and economic activities which help remove them from isolation and fully enjoy life as active members of society.
✓ To work closely with Local Authorities and other bodies in delivering services aimed at safeguarding vulnerable people and their families from exclusion and protection from all kinds of exclusion and abuse.
✓ To engage in awareness campaigns of disabilities including Autism through the delivery of workshops at assemblies in Primary and Secondary Schools and elsewhere which helps dismantle negative attitudes of discrimination, prejudice, stereotyping, bullying, and any other forms of abuse.
✓ To introduce aspects of the ‘Social Model’ of disability in all community settings which helps in improving the knowledge and understanding of disabled people, and collectively identify solutions to the barriers disabled people and their families experience every day.
✓ To facilitate direct support and care to disabled children/young people in an inclusive environment.
