Since 2003 BAC-IN has delivered many successful projects and had been funded by the Nottingham CDP, Nottinghamshire DAAT, Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire Health Care Trust, Big Lottery and Comic Relief benefiting thousands of BAME individuals, families, young adults and partner organisations.
National Lottery Community Fund - Leaders with Lived experience - People with lived experience are given an opportunity to do volunteer work at BAC-IN after completing their recovery programme. They undergo skills training i.e. mentoring, advocacy and facilitating mutual aid support groups and are encouraged and supported to progress into paid roles within BAC-IN or other similar organisations. We aim to raise awareness of cultural issues and culturally responsive solutions for BAME people with lived experience, working with partners and commissioners to promote the ‘leaders with lived experience’ agenda.
Lankelly Chase Foundation 2017 - 2019 - Project Ahryzen - BAC-IN was awarded a two year grant by Lankelly Chase to deliver ground-breaking Project Ahryzen in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University. Project Ahryzen action research aims to explore through the authentic voice of lived experience the lives of BAC-IN peers, hidden experiences of disadvantage and the development of a successful model for supporting BAME communities facing multiple disadvantage.
Some our historical work includes:-
Comic Relief 2012 - 2015 - Project Respect - This project was designed to increase awareness amongst young people of the impact of binge drinking on their personal health, within their families and society as a whole.
