The 1990 Trust is the first national Black organisation set up to protect and pioneer the interest of Britain’s Black Communities. Our approach is to engage in policy development and to articulate the needs of Black communities from a Black perspective.

In Britain the term ‘Black’ historically has been a political one. It is used to refer to people of African, Asian, and Caribbean descent.

Our goals

1. To establish and influence the practical implementation of the principle that ‘Racism is a violation of human rights’ for example via the monitoring and analysis of public policy and parliamentary legislation to assess the implications for and effects on the quality of life of Black communities and to keep Black communities informed of progress on these initiatives

2. To establish an international reputation for excellence and innovation, as an exemplar organisation demonstrating the benefits of African, Caribbean and Asian communities working collectively in tackling racism

3. To develop self organisation and community leadership to empower Black communities in tackling racism and in reaching their full potential

4. To develop the Trust’s ICT services and functions to support, enable and sometimes lead on the achievement of the Trust’s objectives. For example via the development
