Community Advocacy And Mentoring Programme – CAMP

We introduced the AFRIDAC Community Advocacy and Mentoring programme (CAMP) in recognition of the yearning in the community to have increased capacity to advocate for social change in local policies and service delivery. CAMP have been training an army of Community Advocates in the UK. Community Advocates are local to their community, passionate about local issues and able to make a change with the right skills.

Recruited beneficiaries will be trained to identify issues in their community and develop strategies to influence change. Be able to scope stakeholders and understand how to communicate key messages to diverse audiences. Be able to monitor and evaluate advocacy activities in their community. As a Black Community Advocate, they will have the skill to share their story and give voice to their community or group. CAMP helps to amplify the voice of the African and Caribbean community to influence social change, tackle poverty and inequality.

This project has been supported through grants from Trust for London, The National Lottery Community Fund and Mayor of London.
