Africian & Caribbean Support Northern Ireland
African and Caribbean Support Organisation Northern Ireland (ACSONI) is an autonomous community-based Organisation formed in 2003 with a proactive approach towards targeting needs and facilitating belonging among individuals from the continent of Africa, the Caribbean (West Indies) and other families in Northern Ireland with these linkages.
ACSONI works extensively to alleviate the everyday pressures experienced by those in our communities who are socially and economically disadvantaged. In doing so, our work has been benefiting the community through our dedicated drop-in support services and comprehensive programmes.
ACSONI also assists in the preservation and promotion of the African & Caribbean peoples’ identity and cultural heritage, conveyed through arts, educational and cultural programmes, as well as the intercultural exchanges which aids in the wider integration process.
We work collaboratively with other agencies and community groups to support the rights, interdependence and choices of our members and service users.
