Project Zazi is the name for our work with Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) young people tackling issues of inequality, discrimination, oppression, culture and identity.

Please note that the Zazi sessions have moved online throughout the pandemic and lockdown. You can sign up with the button above. Read more about OTR’s availability here

Zazi means ‘Know Yourself, Know Your Strength’. The project offers a mix of one-to-one support and different kinds of group work, where you can explore your identity and culture, try new activities and learn new skills. The aim of Project Zazi is to promote good physical and mental health, healthy relationships and positive lifestyles.

Right now, much of the Zazi offer cannot be delivered, because it would usually take place in a school setting, or a one-to-one setting. For now though, we are continuing to offer Speakers Corner, which you can use the sign-up button above to access. Here is some info:

Speakers Corner

In the light of conversations related to Black Lives Matter and racism – this is a a less formal and structured place where women of colour are able to gather, speak, and release. This group is aimed at BAME people aged 16-25 who identify as female and takes place online, Fridays at 4.30pm.


"The group talks about real things that matter to me, stuff that we don't get to focus on anywhere else. I really like coming and the team are really nice and supportive"
