Some of the Club's aims and objectives are to:raise the profile and consciousness of Black and Caribbean communities in the wider society; provide effective and meaningful role models for our youth; encourage greater participation in community and political affairs; provide resources for adaptation and integration of the Black and Caribbean cultures into the wider community; and to link with existing community services to provide educational resources. Although its focus is on people of Black and Caribbean heritage, it welcomes anyone who shares its goals and objectives.
