Mojatu is a community-led organisation empowering BME communities in Nottingham so that their voices are represented, and their needs are met. We work closely with BME community members to empower them with the knowledge, skills and support they need. We have particular expertise in issues that affect BME communities including media, training, mental health, FGM and knife crime. Community engagement is the driving force behind everything we do and provides valuable insights about the needs and challenges of the community that supports both service delivery and our work with policy-makers and influencers. We exist so that BME communities have the tools, skills and support to recognize their power and realize their potential. Mojatu took their pioneering work against FGM to a new level in 2016 by campaigning and lobbying local government. Working together with Nottingham City Council, they ensured that Nottingham was declared the first city of Zero-Tolerance towards FGM in September 2016. They have continued to train community members, local government, teachers, social workers and health professionals about how to recognise signs of FGM, and how to best support at risk groups. As well as leading delegations to Parliament, Mojatu provides one to one support, facilitate peer support, therapeutic support, sports for fun and other activities to build confidence and skills in survivors. Over the years, we have developed the capacity and skills to work in partnership and collaboration with multiple partners to successfully reach socially and economically disadvantaged and ‘hard-to-reach’ groups, in such a way that they are better able to identify, help and meet their needs and to participate more fully in society. We have succeeded in building better integrated Britain through increased skills, employability, volunteering, active participation and enhanced sense of citizenry among local communities. Following successful pilot community IT media and journalism training in Nottingham, we have run successful digital storytelling training, ESOL and refugee support, as well as acting as mentors for other small groups.
