CAHN’s Family & Advocacy Sessions occur every 2nd Wednesday of the month, with the purpose to address the issues that are faced by the families and individuals of the Caribbean and African Community.


The sessions vary between having a qualified social worker discussing pertinent issues in the community and how to address them, to also having the presence of CAHN’s Advocacy Officers, who can do a Q&A regarding the vast work they do with the black community, in a variety of sectors such as housing, immigration, employment, social services, etc.



The sessions also feature guest speakers with expertise in certain areas or individuals with lived experience and what their journeys have been in overcoming their difficulties.


This is a culturally sensitive and targeted support for vulnerable African & Caribbean families who disproportionately face a range of complex issues and challenges.
