The only vehicle to liberation is building an organisation that can empower the global black nation. Kehinde Andrews

Our origins

Black Thrive Global evolved from the work of the Black Thrive Lambeth partnership, which was established in 2016 to address the inequalities that negatively impact the mental health and wellbeing of Black people in Lambeth. The Black Thrive Partnership brings together individuals, local communities, statutory agencies and voluntary organisations to address the structural barriers that prevent Black people from thriving. Black people’s cumulative exposure to negative experiences and poor outcomes are not unique to Lambeth, as demonstrated by the Race Disparity Audit and global data. Intuitively Black Thrive Global was founded upon the common understanding that wherever Black people of African and Caribbean descent are located, detrimental outcomes persist. We determined that focused Black Leadership which facilitates systems change will transform the Black experience from surviving into thriving.
