For the Community by the Community
Centric is a Research Hub developed, owned and operated by the communities of Lambeth and Southwark. Informed by the history of racism and discrimination on Black and Brown people, along with our lived experience of racial inequities that we still face to this day, we aspire to empower diverse communities of colour across the urban landscape. We strive to upskill our researchers to go beyond just research. Incubating entrepreneurship, mentoring and training are all part of our mission to make impactful change on the society we live in today.Find Out More
