Southwark Black Parents Forum
Southwark Black Parents Forum empowers African and Caribbean parents, guardians, and carers in the area. Set up by the community, the charity helps those involved to have a say in how services are provided – from public bodies to schools and health services.
From inclusive career opportunities, exercise classes and advice on the cost-of-living crisis, the charity provides regular events and a support network. Despite only just launching in 2022, SBPF has already supported 1,300 families and partnered with 42 organisations.
£30,000 from The Fore will support hiring the first two paid positions. These will improve the sustainability of SBPF and create support for thousands more parents across the borough.
