About PATRA Inc ACDA
PATRA Inc ACDA is a registered charity that works with young people aged 16–24, their parents, families, communities, and other stakeholders in countering multiple and complex disadvantages that prevent individuals from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups from competing on an equal basis in the labour market.
We focus on ensuring that young people from these racially and socially disadvantaged groups are properly represented in meaningful and senior positions in proportion to their presence in the labour market and that they are able to progress in learning and work.Contact Us
We enable young people to build career and life readiness skills through workplace training, connections and activities with other young people and through holistic community based support to become productive and engaged citizens.Learn More
Positive Action Tailored Support
PATRA’s work is guided by Positive Action as a means of combating the under-representation of BAME groups and countering the impact of racism, racial discrimination, and racial disadvantages through four Positive Actions.
Our Theory of Change
We believe that consistent and targeted resource investment among young people as they transition to adulthood provides significant and lasting returns. We believe we will have greater impact through collective action and collaboration with broad stakeholders at all levels, individuals, communities and organisations.
