Support for local Somali people

Last updated: 18 May, 2021

We support members from Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) communities mainly from Somali backgrounds. They are often disadvantaged, low-income families, older people, or disabled, and live in some of the most deprived areas of London.

We provide an everyday drop-in advice support service and signpost information about mainstream services and other organisations. We also refer clients with complex cases for professional advice and to legal centres. 

Our workshops for low-income women cover a wide range of subjects including sewing, English conversation and health workshops to help them gain skills and improve wellbeing. 

During lockdown we handed out food to more than 100 families and supplied tablets and mobile phones for people who are digitally excluded.
