African Portuguese Speaking Engagement Strategy.

The APSC Ltd by Guarantee argues that in the British society, there is no system in place that is efficiently working with the APSC, and this is due to the almost 95% of the just over 100,000 APSC that entered in the United Kingdom with a Portuguese Passport, and consequently resulting in the APSC for the last three decades with a sense of been excluded from the British society.

This event will be an opportunity for the diverse local organisations, businesses, families and groups within the BD borough to engage with the many local Afro Portuguese Organisations and businesses receive exposure and join other individuals, organisations, within the borough and have coalitions with our community aiming at sensitizing them about the importance of engagement and participation, community understanding issues, so that together we can promote prevention efforts, and create and strengthen community partnerships. The theme of the Award Nomination Event ‘Together we can MAKE IT HAPPEN’ in 2022 is “With Our Actions Today, We Live Safer and Better Tomorrow.” This theme reminds us that simple, daily acts of prevention, like helping a friend make positive choices or supporting a family member in need, can lead to better and safer lives for each of us today, and stronger, happier communities, tomorrow. The purpose of this event is to increase dialogue, reduce prejudices, encourage engagement & participation and encourage understanding of a community within the diverse BD communities.
