Hwupenyu means “life”
This is what we promote at Hwupenyu: we want to empower you through giving you the tools and support network so that you can live the best possible life.
We cater to Black ethnic communities living in Scotland, and aim to address health inequalities that Black ethnic groups face. We provide practical and emotional culturally attentive support through a varied range of projects. We offer both peer-led support through groups, and individual one-on-one guidance.
Community is at the heart of everything that we do. Being able to have a support network of people who are experiencing similar things to you can reduce the isolation you may feel. It can help to know that you do not have to face these challenges alone – that there is a community of friendly people here who understand.
Information and knowledge is power, and we encourage everyone to make use of our space to learn about their condition and potential treatments. We strive to offer clear, accessible and jargon-free information in a supportive and non-judgemental space. Anything discussed with us will remain fully confidential, unless you or someone else are at immediate risk of harm.
