Education and Personal Development Programmes
At B-FAPEC, we strongly believe in the transformative power of education and personal development. We design and deliver varied bespoke and culturally tailored wellbeing programmes to meet the needs of our participants. All our programmes are created and delivered by lived experience leaders with their own stories to tell. We partner with I AM THRIVING NOW Ltd and other community organisations to deliver programmes like:

This is 3 weeks awareness course which educates participants on everything they
need to know about modern slavery – from definition to types of slavery, the impact
and how to seek support. Participants on this course are encouraged to take TYPIG

We do also signpost participants to other community organisations based on their
From consulting with members of our community, especially during this pandemic,
we realised that some of them, especially from the BAME communities, wants to re-
develop their spiritual purpose, and they desire to do so in a non-judgmental
environment where they can be supported. Hence, this self-reflection course is
designed for participants who desire to re-ignite their faith and reconnect with God.
thereby, filling the vacuum of spiritual emptiness within them. At the end of the
course, participants leave with a renewed sense of spiritual fulfilment and spiritual
values which drives positive thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.
With the increased rate of mental health due to Covid-19 and the lockdown, there is
a dire need for 1-2-1 emotional support for BAME communities to prevent mental

Using self-guided and questioning techniques, we encourage individuals to challenge
their limiting beliefs, create desire goals and we support them towards achieving their
This 2 sesion course is aimed at enhancing mental resilience. With Covid-19 and the surge in unexpected events, our community is experiencing a high rate of grief and stress. Our BAME community has lost the cultural procedure of grieving, and as a result, many are struggling to find healing. At the end of this course, participants will leave feeling reassured, be able to manage negative emotions, deal with grief and stress, understand the change cycle and find a way forward.
Career Development and Entrepreneurship Programmes
In line with our objectives, we build and boost the confidence of our participants by inspiring and empowering them to transform their mind-sets, unlock their passion and potentials and support them to find and live their purpose. Our career and entrepreneurship programmes stir in them the burning desire to gain employment and become financially independent.
Youth Intervention and Prevention Programme
As an organisation created by BAME lived experienced leaders, one of the crises faced within our BAME communities comes from the impact of childhood and domestic abuse on the youths. Statistics show that children are often the most affected victims of domestic abuse. The absence of timely intervention and appropriate support for these victims lead to long-term behavioural challenges.
Through our 1-2-1 services, we identify and support parents and children as early as possible, and signpost them to other services as needed. We also tap into the richness of our inherited community parenting style, especially for single parents. This initiative helps single parents within a closed community to team up with agreed parenting objectives, share knowledge, skills, and parental responsibilities, with the aim of relieving the burden on each other.
Migration and Integration Programme
With the increasing number of Migration, there is a dire need for a culturally tailored, integration programme designed and delivered by African immigrants with lived experience leadership. Migrants are often either forgotten, under-supported with unmet cultural needs, and untapped natural skills. With Covid-19 and the ongoing migration and refugee crisis in the UK, Europe and the world; and the need for compliance to International regulations, we cannot neglect the need for integration, empowerment and policy reforms.
Sensitisation and Advocacy Programme
B-FAPEC also provides sensitisation and advocacy services on socio-cultural and economic issues like domestic abuse, modern slavery, cultural and social exclusion etc. Through our social media pages and organisation website, we post motivation and educative materials and share links and articles to keep our participants informed and inspired.
The Fun Circle Programme
B-FAPEC runs a variety of fun and therapeutic activities. Each week, our participants look forward to something inspiring and engaging.
