“In every Pain, there is Gain”

We are a BAME self-development, emotional wellness and positive integration organisation. It’s created by lived experience leaders to inspire, empower and support refugees, asylum seekers and survivors of abuse to turn their Pain into Gain, becoming vibrant leaders within our communities. We are UK registered CIC, working in Staffordshire and Nottingham.

Tailored Approach

As a Black, Asians and minority ethnic (BAME) organisation, we focus on delivering 1-2-1 emotional and practical support, positive integration programmes, culturally tailored personal development, and wellbeing courses to refugees, asylum seekers victims/survivors of abuse and modern slavery.

We inspire, empower and support our beneficiaries to become lived experience leaders by unlocking their passions and potentials and boosting their self-confidence. We strongly believe that everyone was born for a unique purpose, and not to be abused.

It mostly begins from our childhood

We often carry along childhood unhealed emotional wounds into our adulthood, which gravely affects our personal and cognitive development. Our horrific experiences silence our voices; rupture our self-worth, inhibit our independence as purpose-driven individuals; leave us defenceless, paralysed with fear and anxiety. With a vibrant team of lived experience leaders at B-FAPEC, we want everyone to be happy. We seek to use our stories and help our beneficiaries to start and complete their recovery journey.
