African Voices Forum
African Voices Forum (AVF) is a Bristol-based network of African and African-Caribbean community associations/organisations, other community organisations working to empower Africans and African-Caribbean to take active part in policies and initiatives that concern them, as well as other organisations that share and support the forum’s values, principles, and objectives.
African Voices Forum are running the Diverse Energy Champions project which aims to foster Energy Champions from the BME Community in Bristol in recognition of Bristol European Green Capital City Award 2015. AVF has received funding from Bristol 2015 to work collaboratively with Bristol Energy Network in fighting against Fuel Poverty by fostering BME Energy Champions. This volunteers will receive support and training on energy efficiency and cascade this down to their communities. If you would like to be an Energy Champion please get in touch with us and we will provide you with more information.

- Produce materials and support models to help African and African Caribbean community associations and organisations to implement their basic standards and to work towards their achievement;
- Identify African and African Caribbean experts to support organisations and institutions specialising in education, research, culture, and policy.
- Promote Africa in the curriculum and African Voices in Schools;
- Forge and develop formal community alliances within the UK that seek to advance AVF’s vision and mission. Work in partnership with other organisations / networks as a default principle for new projects.
