A charity/social enterprise that offers end to end, bespoke IAG services for young BME (Black Minority Ethnic) beneficiaries. Our culturally competent and community-based services centres around improving outcomes within the three E's of EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT & ENTERPRISE. Whether helping our young beneficiaries access, Russell group universities in greater numbers, secure employment, establish businesses or become self-employed. We work closely with stakeholders/corporates and refer our beneficiaries for additional specialist support and ringfenced opportunities.
Access UK also offers highly personalised IAG ( Information Advice & Guidance) support for gang members and ex-offenders. We have embedded innovative preventative programmes and interventions in our delivery model, designed to positively affect the mindset and form the foundations for a more productive life for youths who are repeat offenders or active gang members.
Our mission is to reverse the 50% national unemployment rate amongst black youths. We aim to achieve our target of increasing current BME youth employment rates by at least 30%, via the delivery of tailored and culturally competent services, that meet our service users' specific needs.
