High Heritage – Young Black People

Back to Activities

High Heritage was founded in 2020 with the aim of 'Empowering Young Black People to Thrive with Heads Held High'. The charity originates from a passion to improve the lives of young people within the Black community.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • it helps children develop a positive sense of identity and belonging
  • it helps children build self-esteem
  • it provides children with safe and fun activities where they can make friends
