Social or Environmental Mission
For more than ten years, we have used a social enterprise model to promote cohesion, integration and cooperation between marginalised communities and wider society. We believe migrant communities should thrive within British culture. We therefore encourage people to improve their English and communication skills. We also support individuals from ethnic minority communities – especially women – to develop their vocational skills, so that they can achieve their employment potential.
We value the insight of religious leaders who provide spiritual guidance and help people understand their history and culture. We also actively support interfaith initiatives based on shared objectives and common values. How we work During our meetings with young people, we take a practical and hands-on approach. We address their concerns and speak their language.
We run workshops, courses and interactive learning sessions for young men and women. We place particular emphasis on teamwork and tolerance. Our events directly tackle social problems which affect young people in marginalised communities, such as drugs and knife crime, online sexual exploitation and the lure of religious extremism. Through mentoring and by offering positive role models, we have inspired many young people to develop a more balanced outlook, which guides them towards affirmative life choices.
