- Referrals and signposting to appropriate support agencies.
- We provide Interpretation and translation services at service delivery points such as GP surgeries, Hospitals, Housing, Social Care services, Benefit offices etc. to improve communication between the user and service providers.

- Developing resources that are appropriate to our target group
• Commitment to equal opportunities for all
• To be a caring, professional, responsive and user-orientated organisation
• Partnership with key stakeholders
• High standards of management and service delivery
• Care services to suit the African communities’ needs
• Empowerment of volunteers
Our target beneficiaries are women and teenagers from BME communities focusing on African communities. We also include men and young boys where we feel their involvement will improve the impact of our work. We feel empowering the women and young girls are important because most women in the African community are vulnerable.
