We work to bring about a world where personal and collective prosperity, justice and common good stem from better education, leadership development and social engagement.
In the area of social engagement, we train, nurture and encourage our service-users to improve themselves and become agents of positive social change.
Our Work in the Area of Social Engagement
We train, nurture and encourages participants to become agents of positive social change.
Our Social Engagement Projects include:
- The Black Communities
- Welfare Network
The Black Communities Welfare Network
This is a new project launched in March 2023 that aims to:
- Support and improve the welfare of Lambeth residents of black African and Caribbean origins aged 18 and over, affected by long-term ill health conditions, using a holistic lifestyle approach, including nutrition and African relaxation, wellbeing and self-improvement techniques;
- Use PCAP’s unique 6-step training programme to train black African and Caribbean leaders so that they may use the findings of this research as a catalyst for campaigning, combatting systemic health and welfare inequalities, and promoting policies that will eradicate these inequalities.
Loved, Accepted, Heard
Following several surveys throughout 2020 highlighting the disproportionate toll of Covid-19 on the lives and mental health of black women, PCAP partnered with the Thelma Matilda Alves Foundation in 2021 to develop a pilot project aimed at supporting the mental health and wellbeing of women of African and Caribbean descent in Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth, and Westminster over 6 months.
This project was supported by the London Mayor
