About The Ubele Initiative   

The Ubele Initiative (TUI) was established in 2014 as an African Diaspora-led intergenerational social enterprise. Our mission is helping to build more sustainable Black and Minoritised communities across the UK. The Ubele Initiative is unique in that it was built from the bottom up and is intentionally an intergenerational organisation.  Over the past few years, we have designed and delivered a wide range of local, regional, national, and international initiatives which seek to create and build community wealth.   

   

We support Black and Minoritised community-led organisations and groups with their community assets (people, organisations, and physical space). We use social action, community enterprise development, participatory learning & skills development, and next-generation leadership initiatives.   

   

As a result of our appointment as the Black and Minoritised community catalyst organisation for Greater London in February 2020, we now provide more strategic regional and national responses to help minimise the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have gone through a period of rapid growth and change and as a result, our sphere of influence has also grown considerably.
