The Afiya Trust

About us

The Afiya Trust is a national charity that works to reduce inequalities in health and social care provision for people from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities. It was set up in 1997 to pioneer in addressing health inequalities for BME service users and carers and promote the health and wellbeing of BME communities. The Afiya Trust supports and maintains national and local networks concerned with the promotion of BME health and social care issues such as the National BME Mental Health Network, the National Black Carers and Carers Workers Network as well as projects on long term conditions such as cancer.
