The Baobab Foundation has been newly created as a mechanism to secure long term funding for black and ethnic communities and for those organisations that support them. It has been set up as a response to the impact of Covid-19.
Health inequalities are rife in the UK and across the world; BAME communities have been affected disproportionately throughout the global pandemic and it is imperative that this is addressed. Baobab’s vision concentrates on transferring power and agency to those organisations that are often issued with less funding. Their inspiring vision is to have created this new organisation by the end of Summer 2021 and launch with £5-10million in grant funding by the end of the year.
