Below are some of our main initiatives:
Established June 2006. The core purpose of 4WardEverUK is to provide a one-stop-resource for case profiles, news and event details, useful directories & resources, statistics, appeals, and more in relation to deaths and abuses whilst in custody; including the death penalty, other injustices and human rights abuses in the United Kingdom and internationally.
Catalyst 4 Change CIC
Established in 2016, Catalyst 4 Change supports community organisations, social enterprises, faith groups or businesses that have a significant African and Caribbean mental health / wellbeing service user base. They do this by providing learning seminars, networking opportunities, capacity building, incubation support, representation and research; and access to a professional services directory.
Find FoodBanks Brum
Find FoodBanks Brum is a website that provides an online listing service for food banks and other community services situated in Birmingham and the wider Black Country regions, formally launched in July 2013. This recently refreshed website will primarily provide news and information on issues related to food banks, related charitable services and national developments on food and economy; but will also have a basic directory listing.
First Stop Design
First Stop was established in 2004, and supports businesses, enterprises, charities, community and campaign groups of all sizes to get their websites and marketing materials developed at an affordable price. First Stop specialise in producing low-cost, high-quality websites and aftercare, other on-line services, email & file sharing and production & print/delivery of marketing materials.
M.A.S.H. Hub (under development)
The Mentoring & Advocacy Support Hub (M.A.S.H), previously known as the Peer Support Programme, was initially developed as part of the MIND / Time to Change 300 Voices Project to support young African and Caribbean men with lived experience of mental health problems in Birmingham to build resilience and confidence to aid recovery. It is now being redeveloped by Catalyst 4 Change CIC.
National Memorial Family Fund
The National Memorial Family Fund is the first permanent national resource of its kind specifically for those that are affected by deaths in custody. They make small grants available for families and their campaign groups across the United Kingdom to provide practical domestic assistance, to further the work of their own campaigns or to assist them in engaging in a range of other local, regional or national campaigns, events and initiatives.
RedAlert HELP! (under development)
First conceived in 2014, RedAlert HELP! is now under development by 4WardEverUK and Catalyst 4 Change. The initiative already provides an online DIY support hub, and has aspirations to also provide advocacy support and a 24Hr telephone and text advice service for families affected by deaths or abuses in custody, or concerned about vulnerable relatives or friends detained in custody.
United Families & Friends Campaign
The United Families & Friends Campaign is a coalition of those affected by deaths in police, prison and psychiatric custody, and supports others in similar situations. Established in 1997 UFFC supports families of people from varied ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
