Our mission is to promote growth, cohesion, resilience and sustenance amongst and between African groups. This can only be achieved by the identification of the needs of African communities in Nottingham to ensure that specific solutions tailored to the needs of the people are provided. African groups will be given the support they require to survive and be effective to their members.
There are a good number of disengaged African groups in Nottingham that are not functional; GAIN supports them in manpower and finances and will ensure that the groups are sustainable and can cater to the needs of their members. This helps us to ensure the needs of African communities in Nottingham are met, and the communities feel empowered.
By bringing together businesses, community-based organisations, religious organisations, professional bodies and individuals [professionals, refugees, asylum seekers, students etc) living in Nottinghamshire, GAIN aims to overcome the disadvantages that African communities face by acting as a central hub with specialist information to support their needs, as well as being able to provide information, support and guidance as to how to access mainstream support services.
