BAME Leadership Academy programme

The Lewisham BAME Leadership Academy is a new and innovative community 12-month support pilot project which aims to improve the quality of Leadership available to Black Asian and Minority Ethnic frontline led community sector groups operating in Lewisham.

The Academy is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and was established to support, marginal BAME led organisations in Lewisham with neither the leadership capacity nor the financial resources to invest in the skills required to help their organisations survive and thrive.

The Programme will be delivered by leadership consultant Mr Nigel Kippax of Trustee Fellowship and is a combination of practical workshops, mentoring and coaching all aimed squarely at building the capacity of local BAME leaders to help each other and themselves to develop more resilient community organisations,

Local leaders will be provided with access to the skills and knowledge needed to help their organisations adapt, survive and thrive in the context of austerity and increased demand for services among Lewisham’s BAME community sector.
