What we do
We run sessions to raise awareness of cultural issues using art as a medium.

We also deliver training to other agencies such as Social Services, of ‘BME Communities Culture and Health.
At our Centre we have Community Health Information Shop where local people can access information in different languages about health particularly Mental Health and Dementia. We also works to provide information, support and resources to BME Communities requiring assistance in a culturally sensitive manner; to develop monitoring mechanism which will assist in identifying the effectiveness of those services. We also deliver projects with issue based activities, mental health, arts and health and children/adult abuse. We have management committee of five trustees, one part time manager and 6 volunteers and pool of freelance session workers who deliver our projects with the help of paid staff and volunteers.
