We Are Here To Empower The Community
Teakisi continues to evolve in more ways that one, with the aim of empowering African women and connecting with the wider community, we have set up outreach programmes including courses which boost technical skillsets of African women, local community and our global network.
Awarded Funding For Projects
The underlying purpose of the small grants fund is to build on our successful Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) Covid Community Champions programme and extend this to the wider community. These Champions pass on key public health messages to the community in a range of different languages and formats.
Capturing The Strength & Voices Of African Women
If you have a gift in storytelling, empowering through words and celebrating women – join us and together we can change that narrative of the African woman.
What Our Service Users Say
Really enjoyed Dan and Salha’s talk.
Dan obviously has a lot of passion for mental health. The lecture we had about Teakisi was particularly illuminating.
The talk Dr Daniel Jefferson did at the end of the case where he spoke about the inequalities in mental healthcare, particularly in Black women, was really interesting and definitely opened my eyes to just how many inequalities remain within the NHS. I think addressing matters such as this early on in our medical training will make us better doctors and allow us to combat these inequalities throughout our careers.
I found Dan’s talk on Teakisi really engaging and he is clearly very passionate about it. Dan was the first GPL (GP Lecturer) that I had, he is really approachable and encouraging within discussions.
Could I take this as a chance to say Dan Jefferson my appraiser has been superb – really gets the psychological impact of working in primary care. A great example of a supportive appraisal.
Great speakers, inspiring and insightful event.
