About Us

Hodan Somali Community (HSC) was set up in 2005, following the closure of the Somali Welfare Association in 2004.

Addressing the needs of the most vulnerable groups, HSC serves the elderly, people with disabilities and people seeking mental health support. Their services are also heavily accessed by women who experience difficulties with engaging with mainstream service due to language and cultural barriers.

Their main services centre around empowering and engaging their service users to lessen their isolation.

They deliver activities designed to promote social inclusion among the Somali and wider BME community in to British society, including social outings, information sessions in partnership with statutory services and participation in voluntary and statutory sector consultations.
