Global Black Thrive (REF: 19237)

Report of the Managing Director of BHE


The Committee considered a Cornerstone Fund application in respect of Global Black Thrive (Ref: 19237). In response to a question from the Chair, the Managing Director of BHE advised that further changes to the strategic partnership of organisations were not anticipated. The Managing Director of BHE confirmed that the project had previously received a development grant and that officers were comfortable that the project was moving in the right direction, having undertaken a thorough assessment.


RESOLVED – That the Grants Committee of the BHE Board approve a grant of £298,200 over three years (£111,400; £93,400; £93,400) towards a project to build No Wrong Door, a partnership to create a human-centred system in which a referral for any employment support provider in Lambeth would lead the individual to a service which meets their needs, so there will be no ‘wrong door’ for any Black and/or Disabled individual seeking help.
