RIAPS Community Outreach Program
RIAPS mission is to inspire, educate and to equip ethnic minorities through workshops and entrepreneurship.
Due the rise in knife crime in London, we felt that we needed to put training in place to target the grass route problems within our community.
London has 8.6 million people and 44% are from the ethnic minority community.
Statistics on knife crime from 2011- 2019 show a rise involving knife or sharp instrument in England and Wales. 47,000 reported incidents in total. ‘House of Commons library’ Sept 2019-11-29.
We aim to empower the community by supporting government initiatives to improve the well being of target groups within the boroughs to enable them to go and integrate in society by skill building to increase employment rates and reduce dependency and make a positive impact within their community. We will identify and up skill to motivate them to be the best version of themselves.
