WHO WE ARE

African Community Heritage Hub is a registered company by guarantee and registered charity which operates across Birmingham, and the Midlands.

African Community Heritage Hub is committed to breaking barriers, improving lives, promoting participation and community cohesion.

ACHH provides information, advice and support to individuals who face disadvantages, are unemployed or under employed, are on low income, have no skills or low skills, suffer from lack of confidence, are homeless, face social isolation or exclusion or suffer from mental health issues.

Beneficiaries of our services are people of African descent, Black & Minority Ethnic communities, and members of the general public. This include young people aged between 17-30 years old who are NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training), people over 50 years old who are unemployed, unemployed single parents, and refugees and asylum seekers.

We facilitate a better understanding of African culture and heritage within our local community by organising African cultural and social events to promote and raise the profile of African community.

African Community Heritage Hub supports the campaign for sustainable development and protection of the environment as well as advocacy of social justice and individual liberties.

OUR AIMS & OBJECTIVES ARE:

  • To foster social cohesion amongst the scattered African persons or groups in Birmingham and the Midlands and thus mitigate any feelings or effects of isolation, social exclusion or racial abuse,
  • To provide a hub for association, consultation and mutual support particularly for members who are frail, unemployed, have ill health or have physical or mental disability,
  • To work on a proposal and provide to the African community in Birmingham with an African Community centre – to be a hub and central point of meetings and drop in,
  • To promote personal development for self-reliance through activities that impart the appropriate knowledge and skills that foster employment including self-employment,
  • To sustain the African heritage through social activities and community projects within the context of life in Britain, in collaboration with organisations with similar or complimentary aims, and
  • To support the campaign for sustainable development and protection of the environment as well as advocacy of social justice and individual liberties.
