We are an organisation that has been specifically set up, aimed and tailored towards helping and supporting key specific disenfranchised communities
Our mission is to promote and increase social change across our society. We exist to empower vulnerable individuals and communities to gain the right tools and attitudes to fulfil their dreams and to contribute to having a socially fair and sustainable society. Start Change supports BAME, people with disabilities, and ethnic communities, to address the sources of the inequality they face through the lens of intersectionality at grassroots, regional and national levels.
Our team is made up with a diverse collective of passionate professionals and consultants that have chosen to work together to create lasting positive change and legacy for those who are less fortunate and are so often not heard, and to allow them a voice.
We have an extensive UK-wide network, that has been cultivated and nurtured over many decades, along with the organisations Executive Director Julie Jaye Charles (former Chief Executive of ENC) who's personal work and many achievements spanning well over 30+ years, places our organisation with having something very different, special, and unique offering from almost if not all the other current service providers throughout England.
Our team has years of experience reaching out and providing many different types of deliverable quantitative programs that have enabled many assisted and educational measurable outcomes to our specific target groups that we are wishing to engage with.
Our focus as an organisation is solely aimed towards marginalised people and communities that full in between the cracks within the system as is, due to so many providers of services and care that unfortunately often can find it a real struggle to offer the privilege of care and help to our target group, that is functionally able to be offered and provided to the wider society on a whole.
We have been fortunate to be able to be a part of many past initiatives, projects, and specialist programs aimed towards reaching BAME, people with disabilities, and ethnic communities where they are at, and empower them, to believe in themselves, and to becoming active members and people of their own rights within the wider community, to entering full time higher education, as well as full-time employment.
Start Change works tirelessly towards being afforded the opportunity to provide the specialist provision of help, support, and care to the many people with disabilities, and BAME communities that need our Help and Support.
