Due to COVID-19 our offices are currently closed and we are not available to answer any telephone calls. If you leave a message, someone will get back to you. We are delivering the majority of our services online and are working remotely to maintain social distancing. Get in touch with us for further information or to reach one of our Managers.
We love Science and always get excited at this time of the year. Alongside our weekly STEM classes for young people, the Black Science Fair is ACAP’s annual science event.
This year, (due to the pandemic) we are doing things a little different, with most of our activity taking place online. Starting on Monday 5th March we will be showcasing a series of UK Black Scientists and highlighting the contributions that they have made to British Science. Every day we will focus on someone new and will give our audience the chance to learn about some of the amazing work they are doing on a UK and International scale.
We will be holding two Science competitions for children with science experiments that they can do at home with the winners receiving some very special science kits and resources so that they can extend their science learning.
We will also be showcasing a few interviews with Black professionals working in Science roles in the UK so that our young people can be inspired by their stories. Visit this page again to see what we are getting up to over the course of BSW and don’t forget to check out our Social Media where we will be posting daily updates.

Who We Are
The African Caribbean Achievement Project (ACAP) was set up in 1995 to promote and raise the educational development of people of African & Caribbean descent.
We are a volunteer led service and provide mentoring and educational support services to young people. We also provide advocacy and support services to parents as well as a range of other activities
Over the years the service has developed to include young people from all sections of the community and not just African and Caribbean young people. Our service is inclusive and we assist all young people to realise their full potential in all areas of their lives. Browse our website and contact us if you require any further information.
