Our History

Our History: Thriving Futures Collective

Since 2016 Black Thrive in Lambeth has been working with statutory and community partners to address the inequalities that Black people face throughout their lives which negatively impact their mental health and wellbeing, experiences, and outcomes. Black Thrive Global evolved from the work of Black Thrive Lambeth. It 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.

In 2020 via its Growing Great Ideas programmes The National Lottery Community Fund awarded Black Thrive Global just over £5 million over 10 years to establish the Thriving Futures programme to extend and deepen the work of Black Thrive. This programme is a collective made up of Black Thrive Lambeth, Mind in Haringey and Catalyst 4 Change in Birmingham with overarching support from Black Thrive Global. Our guiding principle is that everything we do is for the benefit of Black communities and that our organisation acts as conduits for that purpose. Our journey is shared and collaborative and so we expect some of the ideas and activities to change over time as we evolve together.
