Hey, I am Davina Brown, a passionate, ambitious, mother, who works in commissioning.
I am the Project Coordinator for Soul Purpose 360 Resilient Women Build Communities project and do this as a labour of love. I put women at the forefront of the work I do. I have a passion for supporting people to reach their full potential.
My values include justice, resilience, and freedom. I believe that people should have freedom of choice, I stand against inequality, and I am motivated to drive change.
I am the Pride of Croydon 2022 winner for outstanding contributions to my community. This work continues through the Resilient Women Build Communities programme. Building a strong network of Black women to empower ourselves.
Hi, I'm Rebecca,
Soul Purpose 360 is a sisterhood, it's a space were we are supported, encouraged, celebrated and empowered to live our truth.
I am proud to be a facilitator of the Croydon group, working with Black women in the community to bring about the social change - which Soul Purpose 360 is all about
Hi I am Carlene Antonio,
I joined Soul Purpose 360 because I wanted to be in an environment with likeminded women and make a difference in my community.
I am a facilitator because I believe in the vision, having a safe space for Black women to be our authentic self is so important.
You should join Soul Purpose 360 if you want to be part of a sisterhood that inspire and motive each other to be the best version of themselves.
Hi I'm Lisa,
I joined Soul Purpose 360 after the IWD2022 “Cultivating Black Women" event. I am proud to be part of Soul Purpose 360 as a great believer in supporting women and girls to be a better version of themselves and empowering others. I am a women's rights activist and believe in the ethos of what Soul Purpose 360 stands for.
I recommend joining, as it empowers women no matter where you are in your life journey. It's a friendly, welcoming platform where you can feel supported without judgment - it provides a safe space, which is really important in current times, because as Black women we are up against so much.
We invite you to join us in the Soul Purpose 360 Network of like-minded Black women, with similar experiences, desires and aspirations from across the UK from where you can share and be supported, learn and grow, be inspired and have fun.

The True Nature of Self-Love
Self-love is the greatest love of all!
CVA, 82 London Road, Croydon, CR0 2TB
Unfortunately, far too often, Black women suffer from a lack of self-love, and this can have disastrous consequences for our mental and physical health. Learning to love oneself is the greatest love of all, but knowing what it looks like, feels like and how to cultivate love for self, prevents us from self actualisation.
In this workshop, Karen 'Komplete' Small will share the secrets to how to love yourself.... She will explain the nature and importance of self-love and the multiple ways it can benefit not only you, but those close to you.
When you love yourself, you are free to love and be loved in return.
Bring a notebook, pen and most importantly, bring a pair of cosy socks or slippers with you.
