The Community African Network, CAN is a network of African led organisations working together to address key issues affecting the African community. CAN was established in June 2016 when 7 local organisations agreed to jointly advocate, campaign, and promote issues around health and well-being affecting African in the UK. Through a network of trained community champions and volunteers CAN engage with the African community in places where people congregate, enabling sympathetic, culturally relevant dialogue and discussion about knowledge, barriers and support.
