Sufra NW London is a vibrant Community Hub based in the London Borough of Brent, run by a small team of dedicated staff who work hard, have fun and love what they do. We are a well-established and widely recognised local charity providing a lifeline to people in crisis – including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless or socially isolated. We give our ‘guests’ the food and support they need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their wellbeing, and help them to find work and become financially stable.
Sufra’s core work focuses on providing emergency food aid through our Food Bank and Community Kitchen, but these are gateway services that enable our service guests to access a wider range of services and activities designed to address the root causes of poverty and homelessness. Our services include:
Each of these services is designed to lead vulnerable people on a personal journey from crisis to economic stability, social inclusion and active participation in the community. We rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers to ensure that we can deliver our services, and we work closely with local churches, mosques, schools and voluntary sector organisation for wide range of support.
