Service summary

The Afiya Trust is a national charity working to reduce inequalities in the health and social care provision for people from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) groups.

The word 'Afiya' translates as meaning 'good health' and 'well being' in several African, Arabic and south Asian languages and the Afiya Trust works to re-address instances of inequality for BME in the health, mental health and social care industries.
