Greater Manchester Caribbean and African Scoping Exercise

The Caribbean and African Community have become an ever-growing and significant part of Britain. The statistics reveal that they make up over 6% of the population in England and Wales and these numbers are growing especially within the African population.

The aim of the scoping exercise is to provide intelligence on where the Black community lives across the 10 localities of Greater Manchester. The information gathered will enable us to identify where members of the community are largely concentrated and to seek ways to enhance or address deficit in services that can lead to health inequalities. This data will enable us to better articulate the needs of our community as we engage with service providers and commissioners.

This survey adheres to ethical guidelines and all information gathered will be treated in the strictest confidence. You are not required to provide your name and personal identifiable data will not be collected as part of this survey.

If you are responding to the organisational section of the survey, we would appreciate the organisational details so that we can identify what services exist and where within Greater Manchester

If you would like further information on any aspect of this survey then please contact

Thank you for the time you have given to complete this survey, a report will be published on our website when the exercise has been completed. This project has been commissioned by Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

Single Mother's Project

CAHN held an International Women’s Day (IWD) event in March 18 & 19 that focused upon the mental health and wellbeing needs of the Caribbean and African Women. We have used some of this intelligence which highlights persistent stereotypical views and perspectives of the Black Caribbean and African Woman that can lead to individuals suffering in silence. 
Using some of the information from IWD, CAHN will be running two projects, one will be based in Trafford and the other will be based in Manchester. The project will be co-produced by participants to build upon the knowledge we already have from our Trafford Consultation to develop a peer support group. In Manchester, we will be exploring the needs of Single mothers who have some experience of mental health either for themselves or a family member.
Both projects focus upon the health and wellbeing needs of Black Caribbean & African single mothers and will be facilitated by an experienced practitioner.  The overarching aim is to develop a better understanding of self-help practices, benefits of peer support and culturally appropriate services to improve overall wellbeing.
Please contact us if you are interested in taking part in either of these initiatives.
CAHN is grateful to Trafford Housing Trust for sponsoring the Trafford Project and to Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust for sponsoring our project in Manchester
