The work we undertake supports black and minority ethnic individuals and families now living in Devon. Some of our clients have suffered extreme trauma, and we support some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people within our community.
Racism and discrimination destroy self-confidence and self-esteem, and racial harassment affects many BME people. Racism takes many horrid forms, including verbal and physical attacks, and people who endure these experiences need a great deal of help and support.
If we are to realise our vision – working with individuals, communities and strategically – while also providing the best possible support for people affected by racism, discrimination and prejudice, then we must continue to raise the necessary substantial income to meet the costs involved.
