The Racial Equality Youth Collective is a social group with issue based activities and  workshops in collaboration with mentoring tools and techniques that guide and inspire young people from black and marginalised communities to overcome barriers to their progression and widen their access to opportunities with knowledge and determination

Our main aim is to allow young people of colour in Hull to have a safe space to unlock the true potential of their identity

We also aim to Improve equity, social capitol, and the social mobility of the members of the REYC with the ultimate mission of making real changes to policies and systems in the name of racial justice in Hull

“I really enjoyed the cooking workshops, actually I loved being a part of a team and learning how to cook my home
food.” – REYC Member

“It feels like I have a place to go to and feel
safe. I can experience things that I know
others can relate to with me and I can bounce off other young people who have had issues with racism just like I have.” - REYC Member

“I feel like my experience at carnival
was needed. It opened up a door I
have been locked out of, I feel like I
expressed emotions today and it was
validated.” – REYC MEMBER

“In this group I can say my problems and I can find solutions immediately. I have more power now and I feel more confident because of this group. Without the group I would only be here once a month”. - REYC Member


Chris Kaba was a Black man who was shot by the police
in September this year.

Our service works closely with those who have been
affected negatively by the police and have campaigned
for institutions such as the police to do better at keeping
everyone safe.

Chris could have accessed our service, so we got
together and ensured his story was taken to the streets of
Hull in support of his family.

Going Forward!

The Racial Equality Youth Collective will continue in the fight against racism.

In 2023 we plan to visit carnival again and continue to collaborate with Love Music Hate
Racism as well as other cultural celebrations through out the year

Police Youth Charter – working with Humberside Police in ensuring safety and justice for
those disproportionately penalised by the police and criminal justice system.

Suicide prevention – working with Highways England to incorporate prevention strategies in
the whole process of bridge installation and design. This is an issue that affects all, but again
people of colour, especially men are struggling even more so.

Plugging the gaps in education and bringing representation and youth voice where it matters.
