People Dem Collective is a registered CIC and community organisation based in Margate, Kent.

Founded by members of the Black, Brown and *Diaspora communities.

 



*People of cultural heritage other than the place they were born. 



 

The collective was born out of a lived experience of lack of space, engagement and inclusion for these communities and a desire to encourage healing and transformation.
 

People Dem, is a Patois term colloquially meaning ‘them’.

What we do

We facilitate systemic change, promote healing and continue the work of our ancestors by elevating the presence, work and visibility of people from Black, Brown and Diaspora communities. We focus on their inclusion, engagement and raising aspirations.

 

We are mobilising a shift in the fundamental structures within our community, to ensure our sectors, leaders and decision-makers reflect the communities that live here.
