What is Black Swan

Black Swan’s founder Andrea Wright developed this virtual Wellness to Work initiative that addresses the challenges of black people living with long-term conditions, barriers to employment and structural racism.

It aims to create an environment that centres the lived experience of individuals and their carers in a unique way. By sharing communal knowledge in collaboration, they become active agents in discovering the creative strategies and confidence needed to improve workforce potential.

This initiative is kindly being supported by Black Thrive Lambeth, Elemental Software and Integra Therapy.
