Antwon, Kevin & Anton founded a CIC dedicated to Health Wealth & Oneness based in Nottingham.
Three lifelong friends that have grown up together, sharing a common goal of wanting to make a positive contribution in our communities. Bonded by similar interests, morals & core values. AKA was born in 2020 when we decided to take the leap & formalise the work we were already doing separately, creating our own community interest company (non-profit).
Exercise & health have played a big part in our lives, & we have been fortunate to amass over 1000 football matches in the National Conference & below. Playing semi-professional for clubs such as Hucknall Town, Alfreton Town, Eastwood Town, Loughborough Dynamo, Ilkeston Town, Harrogate Town.
With a combined 50+ years of experience working within the youth and public sector, in a wide range of capacities from National & Local Youth-Based Project Manager, Property Development Manager, Health & Safety/Recruitment Officer, Leisure Centre Attendant, Children’s Secure/Residential Care Home Practitioner, Alternative/Mainstream Education Practitioner, Youth/Adult Justice System Targeted Support Worker, Unity Football & Educational Programme Mentors.
This journey has seen AKA engage with people from a diverse range of backgrounds, from all socio-economic groups, including; BAME, LGBTQ+, high-risk offenders & re-offenders within the criminal justice system, (LAC) looked after children, (SEND) special educational needs & disability, substance misusers, (NEET) not in education, employment or training, refugees & asylum seekers, mental health issues, homeless & vulnerable young people & adults.
The experience we have attained over the years has been vital to our growth as men & has shaped the vision for AKA CIC.
We believe that Health Wealth & Oneness is the foundation for a better tomorrow.
