The Somali Community Development Trust (SCDT) was established in 2002 and registered as a charity and a company limited by guarantee in 2004. The aim of our organisation is to provide help and support to the Somali community, for those in our community who are vulnerable. The SCDT also aims to promote education, recreation, employment and social welfare benefits to the Somali community in Camden and to help provide relief for Somali people who have suffered traumatic psychological injuries, war induced injuries or who have problems with drug and alcohol abuse, through the provision of information, advice and counselling services.
Staff and Trustee Training
As a policy SCDT encourages both the Management Committee, Volunteers and Staff members to participate different training opportunities that many statutory and voluntary sector organisations offer. All staff members attended training offered by 5E at Selby Centre, Voluntary Action Camden (VAC), Regent High School or British Somali Community.
The trustees express their thanks to all funding agencies and individuals that have helped the charity to develop and provide its crucial services for the local community. Special thanks go to the following agencies that supported the charity during this financial year:They are Camden Council, Regent High School and William Ells School.
