|OUR VISION, OUR MOTTO & MISSION
To co-ordinate, organise and help Zimbabweans in our community overcome ignorance, fear, destitution, deportation and realise their dreams for a happy and free life both in the UK and abroad. On that note we endeavour to do our best in facilitating and advocating for a stress free integration of our people within the English society and pursue the agenda for a New Zimbabwe. It is also our vision as Zimbabweans to ultimately have a social club or cultural centre of our own. As a pressure lobbying group and hardworking people we seek to impact positively on both our families as role models and the society around us as peace-loving and law-abiding citizens.

NB: OVER the past 6 months there has been an increase in the numbers of asylum seekers in Nottingham being detained and threatened with deportation. Although a number have had their deportations stayed (the fight continues for their right to remain), others have been deported within days and face an uncertain future back in their countries of origin. Given the current economic and political climate, attacks on refugees and asylum seekers can only get worse.
May we take this opportunity to remind all our members and all other interested parties that even under such circumstancies highlighted above our mission statement and policy remains the same as we continue to be focused on our objectives and aims as NZCN. Let it be clear, therefore, that in all our undertakings and deliberations it is never our policy at all to stand in the path of justice or encourage any unlawful activity. Hence, nobody should ever mistake us for sympathising with any criminal or illegal activity whatsoever. Where the law should take its course, we do not dispute. Weare not lawyers but a pressure charity which when required to provide evidece or proof of membership of any of our members or demonstrate/protest for the benefit of such, we do our best without fear or favour and within the correct legal parametres. We only try our best under justifiable circumstances to plead with the powers that be that our members and more especially those who sought asylum are not forced into or subjected to situations where they obviously would face percecution from Mugabe or his supporters.
We are sincerely gratiful for the understanding and continued support we receive from all our members, partners and associates, including such organisations as The Refugee Forum, No Borders, the Nottingham City Council and other various government departments such as the courts, honourable members of parliament, the home office, the police (especially community relationship building section), other community network groups and several individuals whose names we cannot list here because of space limitations.
As an organisation we believe that better families constitute better societies and fully understand that integration is a process which no individual can fully achieve alone.
Building a better and just society, united we stand – one race, the human race or mankind.
