Engage Communities is a not for profit organisation registered as a Community Interest Company (registration no. 07382290). We are committed to empowering and developing socially excluded and disadvantaged members of communities. Engage Communities provides a specialist Black, Asian & minority ethnic (BAME) service. We work with marginalised and disadvantaged people in order to address some of the most problematic and stigmatised issues facing policy makers, practitioners and communities themselves.
Engage works in partnership with voluntary and statutory services, signposting clients and providing employment, education and training support. We also deliver outreach, mentoring, diversionary sports activities and emotional, practical and social support. A theoretical model of community engagement underpins all our work â€“ the principle that communities are at the centre of design, development and delivery of all our projects and services. Our priorities are to tackle health inequalities, promote safer communities and improve social cohesion in the West Midlands area.
