All I can say is ACD helped build my character. Being part of the scheme is like having a second family, where Brenda, the chief executive, is your mother and the students and mentors are your brothers and sisters. Your family’s job is to be your backbone, to help you and guide you through life. This is exactly what ACD is about.

Who We Are

What We Do

Because of our efforts, ACD has actively contributed to narrowing the gap in the educational achievements of black British youth within government statistics and has, in addition, facilitated creative and practical routes into employment for this underrepresented group. We have had over 300 students come through our programme over the past 10 years and the results speak for themselves:


Gain admission to universities


Gained admission to the top 30 universities


Over 90% of ACD Alumni are in employment


Have gained employment in highly competitive graduate recruitment programmes where black British citizens are greatly underrepresented
