British Somali Community

Somali Community (BSC) is a voluntary women led organisation. It was established in May 1995 in Camden Town, London.

It aims to reduce the stress an isolation felt by elderly Somali women who are effectively house bound, as much by cultural and langauge barriers as through physical difficulties.

Activities include physical exercise, relaxation, health seminars, social interaction and lunch club. The project runs on Wednesdays from 12-3pm at the Charlie Ratchford Centre Community Centre.
